Emmitt Thomas, Otis Taylor inducted into Black College Football Hall of Fame

New, comment

The Kansas City Chiefs were very well represented during the induction ceremonies for the 2016 class at the Black College Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Defensive back Emmitt Thomas and wide receiver Otis Taylor were both franchise greats for the Chiefs inducted on Saturday, along with the very first black pro football scout, Lloyd Wells. Wells worked for the Chiefs and was key to the team adding Buck Buchanan, Willie Lanier, Thomas and Taylor. Chiefs safety Eric Berry was also at the ceremony.

Aeneas Williams, Ken Burrough and Jethro Pugh were the other three members of the class of six. Check out the complete list with bios here.
