Atlanta (January 28, 2016) — The College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience has introduced two new exhibits for fans to enjoy the greats of the game and test their football skills.
In the Kia Building a Champion Gallery guests will discover the “Test Your Skills Kia Performance Center” that offers a one-of-a-kind football combine experience. Participants will find out if they have what it takes with a vertical leap, 40-yard dash and an agility reaction drill. The results are provided on a customized player draft card as a takeaway for fans.
The Specialty Exhibit delivered by UPS is a new temporary display celebrating the 2015 Hall of Fame Class. The “2015 Hall of Fame Salute” features ten game-worn jerseys, 4 helmets and other unique artifacts including a sweater vest worn by former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel in the 2002 National Championship Game. The exhibit also features the first-ever Butkus Award won by Brian Bosworth in 1985. Additional members of the Class include Trev Alberts (Nebraska), Bob Breunig (Arizona State), Sean Brewer (Millsaps), Ruben Brown (Pittsburgh), Wes Chandler (Florida), Thom Gatewood (Notre Dame), Dick Jauron (Yale), Clinton Jones (Michigan State), Lincoln Kennedy (Washington), Rob Lytle (Michigan), Michael Payton (Marshall), Art Still (Kentucky), Zach Thomas (Texas Tech), and Ricky Williams (Texas) and coach Bill Snyder (Kansas State).
“Providing an engaging, immersive and interactive experience for our guests is our number one priority,” said Hall Interim President, John Christie. “The tribute to the 2015 Hall of Fame Class in the UPS Specialty Exhibit and the new Kia Test Your Skills interactive provide the unique blend of history with the pioneering interactive experience our visitors have come to expect.”
