Snubbed Twice, Boise’s Kellen Moore Is Up For Hall of Fame Again
Only one Boise State football player comes to mind as a clear and easy favorite if we were to name the GOAT of the program. Standing for 'Greatest of All Time', there have been many great Broncos but none as prolific as Kellen Moore.
With only 3 losses in four seasons as the starting quarterback for Boise State football, Kellen Moore to this day is the winningest quarterback in NCAA Division I college football history.

What if we told you that the winningest college football quarterback in history--who played all four seasons as a starter--was NOT in the College Football Hall of Fame?
We would be just as shocked and unfortunately, it's reality.
Kellen Moore has been nominated twice now--which is not an easy feat. In order to be nominated, a player must:
- Have ben named first-team All-American by a major selector
- Played their final year of football in the last 10 seasons prior
- Played within the last 50 years
- Cannot be currently playing professional football
The of course, the vetting process from other hall of fame inductees to board members is very intense. Of the 5.62 million individuals to ever play college football--only 1,074 are in the Hall of Fame.
We know that it is time for Kellen Moore to get his shine and really hope that 2024 is the year. He has been eligible for 3 years and has been nominated all three-- his stats as a player speak for themselves and he continues to be one of the best names in NFL coaching.
