DALLAS (AP) – Art Shell has been selected for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame as a member of its Divisional College class.

The divisional class honors coaches and players who competed outside the top level of college football.

Shell played offensive tackle for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore from 1964-67, and went on to a long career with the Oakland Raiders as a player and a coach. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1989.

The other players in this year’s divisional class, chosen by the National Football Foundation, are Westminster College (Pa.) quarterback Joe Micchia (1987-89), Washington University linebacker Shelby Jordan (1969-72) and Ithaca College fullback Jeff Wittman (1989-92).

The coaches are Frank Cignetti (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), James Donnelly (Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee State) and Jess Dow (Southern Connecticut University).
