CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami running back Chuck Foreman was among those school legends, conference record-holders and NFL standouts selected to the 2022 ACC Honors Class, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Wednesday.
Foreman, a former first-team All-American by Sporting News, ranks fifth all-time on Miami charts with 3,365 all-purpose yards. He had five career 100-yard rushing performances, returned 42 kickoffs for 882 yards and accumulated 17 touchdowns over the course of his career.
Foreman ranks fourth and sixth all-time for all-purpose yards in a season (1,555 in 1972 and 1,467 in 1971) at Miami. He played cornerback, running back and wide receiver during his career as a Hurricane, and finished his UM career with 1,631 rushing yards and caught 56 passes for 732 yards.
A first-round draftee of Minnesota Vikings, Foreman went on to earn NFL Rookie of the Year honors in 1973. An illustrious professional career saw him selected to the Pro Bowl five times. He led the NFL in receptions in 1975 (73), and was named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Year by UPI in 1976.
