PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME Players, coaches and contributors who have “made outstanding contributions to professional football” are inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As of 2011, a total of 267 individuals have been enshrined. Seventeen comes from of the charter class selected in 1963. [betnow] Currently, the rules stipulate that between four to seven individuals are to be selected each year. A 44-person Selection Committee—media representatives from each pro football city and at-large delegates among them—scrutinizes and studies the candidates. Each one must receive at least 80 per cent approval of the Committee at the annual meeting before one can be elected.
