Georgia Tech legend Joe Hamilton has earned college football’s highest honor – induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Hamilton was named to the 16-member class consisting of 14 players and two coaches. He is the 13th Tech player to be inducted and the first quarterback. Tech’s inductees also include coaches John Heisman, William Alexander and Bobby Dodd.
Prior to the announcement, Hamilton had repeatedly said he held no expectations over induction, as being part of the ballot was honor enough. He said that being named to the hall would be “icing on the cake.”
After the announcement, Hamilton sent the following message from his Twitter account:
“Honored. Humbled. Thank you god, every coach and teammate and the Georgia Institute of Technology!!! From Alvin SC to Hall of Fame!”

Minneapolis will host the 2018 Super Bowl after a vote by owners Tuesday rewarded the city for its new stadium deal.
The owners chose Minneapolis and the $1 billion stadium planned for the site of the old Metrodome to host the championship over New Orleans and Indianapolis.
"It's been 10 years and we've always been driving to build a stadium," Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said. "We can rejoice right now for being rewarded this, but the hard work comes now."
New Orleans bid committee members believed the new Minneapolis stadium, set to open in 2016, swung the vote. The stadium will hold up to 72,000 for the Super Bowl.
"The new stadium was absolutely the deciding factor," Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation President Jay Cicero said. "Any time that there is so much public support for a $1 billion stadium, the NFL owners are impressed.
"We did everything we were supposed to do, had a fantastic presentation. In the end we think the stadium did it."
The big game will be staged in the Twin Cities for the second time. It was there in 1992, when Washington beat Buffalo.
"It extends our calendar," bid chair Marilyn Carlson Nelson said. "We can demonstrate to people they can have a fantastic time in Minnesota. We really like a party with a purpose."
Owners needed four ballots to choose Minneapolis, with Indianapolis the first city eliminated. Indy was praised for a highly successful 2012 Super Bowl, but could have been hurt by the recent legal troubles of Colts owner Jim Irsay.
Irsay underwent treatment after he was arrested and accused of having $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his car. He made his first public appearance since the arrest.
Irsay said Indianapolis will bid again.
"Before, we had to lose one to get one," he said, noting Indy fell short in previous bids before landing the 2012 game. "It will take persistence and we know we have the type of people who will be that."
New Orleans was considered the favorite and has staged the Super Bowl 10 times, tied with South Florida for the most. Its bid might have been damaged by the blackout that interrupted the 2013 title game.
Next year's game is in Glendale, Arizona, followed by Santa Clara, California, for the 50th Super Bowl, then Houston.
Earlier at their spring meetings, NFL owners tabled any vote expanding the playoffs to 14 teams.
There is strong sentiment among the owners to add a wild-card team in each conference to the postseason, most likely beginning in 2015. Under such a setup only the team with the best record in each conference will get a week off at the beginning of the playoffs.
New York Giants owner John Mara, who is against adding more playoff teams, said the topic probably will come up for more discussion in October.
"I don't think it's a sure thing at all," Mara said of going to 14 playoff teams. "It's probably more likely than not, but nothing is set in stone. There was no straw poll taken. ... I think it's good the way we have it."
The players' union says it needs to be consulted on an expanded postseason, and Mara said that would happen at some point if the owners decide to expand the playoff field.
A committee examining the time, length and site of the draft reported to the owners. Commissioner Roger Goodell has said the league is considering several options:
—keeping the draft in May; it drew record TV ratings this year after it was moved back two weeks from its usual late April slot;
—adding a fourth day;
—moving it from its traditional spot in New York to a variety of NFL cities, with a dozen already having expressed interest;
"If I was king of the world, I'd put it right back where it was," Mara said, referring to the April dates.
In other matters, new director of football operations Troy Vincent hired three advisers, including Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary. Vincent, a former All-Pro defensive back, also hired former NFL player and coach Jimmy Raye and former player and general manager Mike Reinfeldt.
Among other chores, the three new hires will serve as liaisons to league coaches and front-office personnel.
"These men bring sound wisdom, football experience and insight that helps us support our clubs and coaches, as well as grow and develop our players and game," Vincent said.

Complaints of injury linked to e-cigarettes, from burns and nicotine toxicity to respiratory and cardiovascular problems, have jumped over the past year as the devices become more popular, the most recent U.S. data show.
Between March 2013 and March 2014, more than 50 complaints about e-cigarettes were filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to data obtained through a public records request. That is on par with the combined number reported over the previous five years.
The health problems were not necessarily caused by e-cigarettes. And it is not clear that the rate of adverse events has increased. In 2011, about 21 percent of adult smokers had used e-cigarettes, according to federal data, more than double the rate in 2010.
Special: These Are the Deadliest Foods in America. Read This List.
Still, David Ashley, director of the office of science at the FDA's tobacco division, said the uptick is significant, especially in light of a recent report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showing an increase in the number of e-cigarette-related calls to poison control centers.
"Both together does suggest there are more instances going on," he said.
The FDA is poised to regulate e-cigarettes and other "vaping" devices for the first time, potentially reshaping an industry that generates roughly $2 billion a year in the United States. Some industry analysts see e-vapor consumption outpacing that of traditional cigarettes, now an $85 billion industry, within a decade.
E-cigarettes are battery-powered cartridges filled with a nicotine liquid that, when heated, creates an inhalable mist. Little is known about the long-term health effects of the products, which were developed in China and moved into the U.S. market in 2007.
"Some evidence suggests that e-cigarette use may facilitate smoking cessation, but definitive data are lacking," Dr. Priscilla Callahan-Lyon of the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products wrote in a recent medical journal article.
Contradictory findings from preliminary studies have become ammunition in the lobbying campaign around the devices, which allow users to inhale nicotine without the damaging tar produced by conventional cigarettes.
Public health officials have said the devices may encourage nonsmokers, particularly young people, to try conventional cigarettes. E-cigarette advocates have argued that they provide a safer alternative for smokers.
The FDA has sponsored research to try to answer safety questions, and it is examining its database of adverse events for any trends that might raise concerns.
The complaints from the public filed with the FDA cited trouble breathing, headache, cough, dizziness, sore throat, nose bleeds, chest pain or other cardiovascular problems, and allergic reactions such as itchiness and swelling of the lips.
One person told the FDA that while eating dinner at a restaurant a customer at the next table was smoking an e-cigarette.
"The vapor cloud was big enough to come over my table and the e-cig smoker was 'huffing' it voraciously," the person, whose name was redacted, wrote. "I got dizzy, my eyes began to water and I ended up taking my food to go because of the intense heartbeat I began to develop."
One woman wrote that her husband began smoking e-cigarettes liberally in his car and home after being told they were safe and that the vapor was "just like water."
"My 4-year-old has had a raspy voice since he started but I really didn't think anything of it till last night my husband was just puffing away on that thing for hours and I woke up wheezing and unable to breathe."
Miguel Martin, president of Logic Technology, one of the biggest U.S. e-cigarette makers along with Lorillard Inc and privately held NJOY, said the spike in adverse event reports reinforces the importance of regulation, especially in areas governing manufacturing practices and labeling, where standards can vary dramatically.
"Clearly, because of the business opportunities, you have companies in an unregulated environment that are importing without checks and balances," he said, adding that while Logic pays attention to quality control, "some other companies just are not having the same diligence or focus."
MADE IN CHINA
Most e-cigarettes are made in China and sold under more than 300 brands in the United States, some through retail stores, others online.
The quality of the products is inconsistent, however, making it difficult to tease out the cause of any health problems.
One smoker began using e-cigarettes following dental surgery after the dentist said quitting smoking would speed the healing process, according to a report filed last October with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission that was forwarded to the FDA.
"It blew up in my mouth while inhaling, burning my stitches and gum, lip and fingers," the report said.
Others complained of over-heating devices.
"The electric cigarette gets hot when you use it and alters the taste buds," wrote one consumer. "I just recently realized what was turning my taste buds black."
It is not possible to draw general conclusions from individual case reports, but there is a growing recognition that the inconsistent quality of the devices, aside from any risk inherent in the inhalation of nicotine vapor, poses potential safety risks.
In a bid to address quality concerns, some e-cigarette makers are beginning to make them, either partially or wholly, in the United States.
Reynolds American Inc, which began selling its Vuse e-cigarettes in Colorado last July and expects to expand nationwide this summer, makes its products in Kansas and North Carolina, though it still imports its batteries from China.
The reason, Richard Smith, a Reynolds spokesman said, is that inconsistent quality is turning off potential customers.
"There has been a high level of trial among adult consumers but a low level of adoption," he said.
While the cost may be higher than sourcing ready-made products from China, the pay-off, Reynolds is betting, will be customer loyalty. If a quality problem arises during the manufacturing process, Smith said, "we can identify and fix it.

A brand new local pickup and delivery service thinks it's the next big thing. Kanga launched in the metro area last week.
The company delivers just about anything in Atlanta from an envelope to furniture on the same day.
“My product will go straight to the customers the same day that they've posted an order, so the immediate gratification is already satisfied,” said Carla Foster with the Carson Brice Trading company.
Foster is one of several business owners who've already signed up with Kanga.
Here's how it works: retailers set a flat rate for delivery. For everyone else, once you download the app to your phone, you type in what you want delivered, how big it is, where it's going and then name your price.
Drivers like Michael Wilson can accept your price and get your delivery to you the same day, even down to the hour.
“I actually do Lyft driving so I actually like that same idea doing it with packages,” Wilson said.
Kanga is like Lyft or Uber, meeting with UPS or FedEx. It’s an idea that co-founder Everett Steele says has huge potential.
“Basically we connect people who are already running around town with people who need things delivered, shipped, moved, retailers, individuals, kind of anybody,” Steele said.
The Atlanta-based company started operating last week and already has 300 users and 35 drivers in the system.
Steele says it's another example of technology putting people to work and making small businesses more competitive.
“It really gives them a competitive advantage with companies like Amazon who provide two-day shipping or the big box stores,” Steele said.
“I think it will really boost our sales, get our name out there and we really just want to deliver some happy,” Foster said.
Channel 2 Action News reached out to Atlanta based UPS to get their thoughts on the competition. A spokesperson said they we would get a statement shortly, but we never heard back.
Kanga wants to expand nationwide in the next year and half.
