Former Packers safety Nick Collins has been chosen as one of the inductees into the Bethune-Cookman University Hall of Fame for 2016. The induction ceremony will take place on Sept. 16.
A second-round draft pick by the Packers in 2005 out of Bethune-Cookman, Collins went on to earn three Pro Bowl selections, and he’s best remembered for returning an interception for a touchdown in Super Bowl XLV. Collins, whose career ended two games into the 2011 season due to a serious neck injury, was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame this past summer.
At Bethune-Cookman, Collins was a three-year starter at free safety and a team captain who earned All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference honors and Division I-AA (now FCS) All-America recognition. His father, Willie Collins, played quarterback at Bethune-Cookman. He is pictured here with Alvin Wyatt, Bethune-Cookman’s head coach during Collins’ playing career.
