Cross Elected to College Football HOF

Posted by Taylor Price on May 28, 2010 – 3:16 PM

Randy Cross received big news on Thursday.

The former 49ers offensive lineman was named as one of 14 inductees into the National Football Foundation’s College Football Hall of Fame.

Cross, a 13-year veteran of the 49ers and member of the team’s 10-Year Club, enjoyed a very successful collegiate career at UCLA from 1973-75. Cross was named as a First-Team All-American in 1975, and led the Bruins to a Rose Bowl Championship that same year. Cross is the 13th UCLA alum to be inducted into the NFF College Hall of Fame.

After his successful college career concluded, Cross was selected in the second round of the 1976 NFL Draft by the 49ers. He played multiple offensive line positions for three Super Bowl Championship teams, and was also named to three Pro Bowls (1981, 82, 84) with the 49ers.

    Randy Cross was one of the best centers of all-time. Certainly during the 49ers championship haydays Randy was he was the rock of a great offensive line that saw one of the NFL’s best offensive machines ever.
    Techinique, strength, agility – Randy Cross had it all.
