Tuesday, the Atlantic Coastal Conference announced its 2021 Football honors class and a Pitt Football legend made the list.

Marino still holds the school records for touchdown passes in a career with (79). He was also named an All-American and placed fourth in Heisman Trophy voting in 1981.

Marino was a first-round draft pick of the Dolphins in 1983 and had an illustrious NFL career breaking records in his 17-year career. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005,

The 14-member group will be honored during the ACC Football Honors on Dec. 3, as well as the on-field pregame festivities for the ACC Championship game on December 4, in Charlotte North Carolina.
