This story was updated to include coach Glenn Killinger-Dickinson who was an All-American quarterback for Penn State in 1921. He is now nominated for the Hall of Fame as a coach after he earned entry as a player in 1966.

The ballot is out and four former Penn State players – and one current coach – are in the running to land in the College Football Hall of Fame.

Wide receiver Bobby Engram, running back D.J. Dozier and offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski are three of 78 former FBS players on the ballot. Penn State wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield is also up for consideration. Stubblefield played wide receiver at Purdue and graduated in 2004.

Glen Killinger-Dickinson is already a member of the College Football Hall of Fame as a player. He is nominated again as a coach. He coached college football at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (NY), Moravian College and West Chester University. He played football, baseball and basketball at Penn State.

The ballot includes marquee names like linebacker Ray Lewis (Miami), defensive end Dwight Freeney (Syracuse) and quarterback Carson Palmer (USC).

Voting runs through July 7 and will then go to the National Football Foundation’s Honors Courts to decide who makes the cut. Penn State currently has 18 players in the Hall.
