Dick Sheridan was elected to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in the 2020 class!


No less an authority than the late Furman Bisher wrote that Sheridan could "walk on water!" And that's plenty good reason to elect him to the hall of fame! Other equally good reasons are that he won 69.4% of all the games he coached in 15 years of being head coach. This saw him turn Furman into a DII powerhouse, and come to NC State and turnaround a moribund program into one of national relevance. Sheridan also earned two national coach of the year, honors at both Furman and NC State.

Despite now being elected to the national hall of fame, and having previously been named to Furmans' and to the South Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, he has not yet been elected to the NC State Hall of Fame. Seems that he and Rollie Gieger now share that distinction of being enshrined in their respective sports' national halls before being elected to the one for NC State! It's past time those two glaring oversights get rectified real soon!
