Lou Holtz Has His Own Hall Of Fame

Lou Holtz has a bit of everything these days.

He has his national championship from Notre Dame. He's on television every week as an ESPN analyst. He's being inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame next year.

And speaking of Hall of Fames, turns out Lou has his own.

The Upper Ohio Hall of Fame is actually named after Holtz, who grew up in East Liverpool, Ohio and met his wife there.

Holtz showed up at the induction ceremonies -- and really, he should considering the Hall has his name on it -- to help enshrine the newest honorees including former Irish running back Jerome Bettis.

Among the other things given out -- the "Lou Holtz Life Improvement Scholarship Award."

One day, we hope to see this Hall of Fame, as we get the feeling East Liverpool is some sort of Lou Holtz Disneyland, complete with Gamecocks bumper cars, a Notre Dame water slide, the William & Mary kissing booth, an Arkansas pig roast and the Haunted House of Professional Football, sponsored by the New York Jets.
