About Hall of Football

Welcome to the Hall of Football, tracking players from the cradle to Canton. We will cover — and rate — the best football players from preps to pro and into the Hall of Fame.

For publisher Frank Cooney, this is the logical culmination of covering football at every level since 1965, including the first major media coverage of the NFL Draft beginning in 1967 for the Hearst Corporation.

In 1987 he founded NFLDraftScout.com (which is now part of HallofFootball.com) which was featured on NFL.com, CBSSports.com and most major sports media sites. He was on the launch team that created the underlying rating system for Madden Football, which was also applied to NCAA video games, and is in his third decade as a member of the prestigious Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee.

The goals of Hall of Football are to (1) track the best players from high school to retirement and beyond and (2) create live player ratings at each level through each season.
