A former Syracuse University quarterback with a connection to the Eagles named Don was selected to the College Football Hall of Fame ...

But it was not Donovan McNabb.

Don McPherson, who was on the Eagles roster from 1988 to 1990, was among 13 players and two coaches chosen for enshrinement today. McPherson led Syracuse to an undefeated regular season, No. 4 national ranking in 1987 and was second in the Heisman Trophy voting. Of course, Pat Dye went for the tie in Sugar Bowl back when there was no overtime, but that is another story.

His professional career was spent primarily in the Canadian Football League.
