Bobby Bell Will Be Inducted Into Rose Bowl Hall of Fame This Weekend

Bell was the first Chiefs player inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1983

Former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Bobby Bell was already a Super Bowl Champion (1969), a national champion (1960), a three-time Pro Bowler and a member of both the Pro Football and College Hall of Fames.

In 2015, Bell finally earned his college degree from the University of Minnesota 53 years after leaving school early to play professional football.

This weekend, Bell, one of 10 Chiefs with his number retired by the organization, will add another accomplishment to his long list of accolades.

He will be inducted into the 2016 class of the Rose Bowl Game Hall of Fame. Bell won the Rose Bowl championship in 1962 with Minnesota over UCLA. He also played in the 1961 Rose Bowl.

At Minnesota, Bell was a two-time All-American defensive tackle and also won the Outland Award, given annually to the best interior lineman in the country. Minnesota was 22-6-1 during his tenure.

Bell intercepted 26 passes, recovered 15 fumbles and scored nine touchdowns in 168 professional games.

Bell still works with the Chiefs organization to this day as an ambassador.
