The SEC announced its 2017 Legend Class for football earlier today. Each member institution has a player inducted into this prestigious group of players each season. Representing the Mississippi St. Bulldogs in 2017 is Floyd “Pork Chop” Womack.
The SEC began inducting players into the SEC Legends back in 1994. Previous members from the Mississippi State Bulldogs includes players like Fred Smoot, Randy Thomas, D.D. Lewis, Eric Moulds, and many others. This is a great honor for any player who played in the SEC to be inducted into this prestigious class of players.
Pork Chop is one of my favorite all time Bulldogs. He was a fantastic offensive lineman from 1997 through 2000, and he sported one of the best nicknames a Bulldog has ever had. Here is what the official release from the SEC office had to say about Pork Chop Womack’s induction into the SEC Legends.
Mississippi State offensive lineman Floyd "Pork Chop" Womack is one of the greatest offensive linemen in MSU history, starting in 31 games at tackle. The 2000 season saw him earn first-team Associated Press All-America and All-Southeastern Conference honors. Womack was a member of three Mississippi State bowl teams as well as the school's only SEC Western Division championship team in 1998. A fourth-round NFL draft pick in 2001, he went on to play in the NFL for 11 seasons for the Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals. Womack started 71 NFL games before retiring at the end of the 2011 season.
Congratulations to Pork Chop Womack on being inducted into the SEC Legends. You were a great Bulldog and you will represent us well!
