Atlanta is now home to one of the largest museums in the country honoring U.S. college football greats.

Relocated from South Bend Indiana, the National College Football Hall of Fame got a new 94,000-square-foot facility featuring interactive multimedia displays, a children’s theater, and special event spaces.

The grand opening of the National College Football Hall Of Fame is Saturday, August 23.

GPB News had a chance to take a peek inside Wednesday morning at a special media preview day featuring College Football Hall of Fame inductees from Georgia.

One of those Hall of Famers was Georgia Southern University quarterback Tracy Hamm. Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007, Hamm is the only player in college football history to run for 3,000 yards and pass or 5,000 in a career.

In July, Georgia Southern University named Hamm Associate Athletic Director.

GPB’s “All Things Considered” host Rickey Bevington sat down with Hamm to talk about his career and the future of college football.

We’ll air that interview on Friday, August 29 during a special football edition of “All Things Considered”.
