Oscar Smith Graduate Kenny "The Enforcer" Easley has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Easley was an electric player while at Oscar Smith becoming the first player to throw and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season in Viriginia. Kenny went on to UCLA (3 time All-American) before being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks (1981-1987) where he would be selected for 5 Pro-Bowls, win NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1984, and be chosen for the All-Decade Team. In 1996 Oscar Smith Honored Kenny by naming the Football field in his honor (Beard-DeLong-Easley Field). Kenny will be joining the Pro Football Hall of Fame along with 6 others in the 2017 class and has chosen his former coach at Oscar Smith, Tommy Rhodes, to give his induction speech. Congrats to Kenny and his family for this amazing honor.
