Roosevelt Taylor, a two-time Pro Bowl safety for the Bears, will be among 15 people inducted into the Grambling Legends Sports Hall of Fame.
Taylor was among the stars of a Grambling defense that helped the team win a SWAC championship in 1960. In 1963, he intercepted nine passes. For his career, he had 32 picks, and he scored six touchdowns.
The headliner of this year's class is Doug Williams, the Super Bowl XXII MVP.
"There is such a legacy at Grambling," said Pro Football Hall of Famer Willie Brown, part of last year's inaugural class. "We have so many great athletes to come out of Grambling, and this is a way for those athletes to be recognized because of the things they have done."
The event will be held July 17 at the Monroe Civic Center in Monroe, LA.
