Former Bears center Olin Kreutz was voted to six Pro Bowls in 13 seasons with the Bears.

Kreutz was a three-year contributor and two-year starter at Washington, opening all 11 games as a sophomore in 1996 and a junior in 1997. He was named first-team All-Pac 10 in each of his final two seasons before declaring for the 1998 NFL Draft.

A third-round pick, Kreutz was voted to six Pro Bowls in 13 seasons with the Bears from 1998-2010, anchoring the offensive line while winning four division championships and one conference title. He appeared in 191 games with 183 starts, one shy of Hall of Fame running back Walter Payton's franchise record.

Jaeger will be enshrined in the Husky Hall of Fame along with the rest of the 1984 team that beat Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl and finished second in the final polls.

Jaeger is already in the Hall of Fame as an individual, having been inducted in 2004.
Jaeger remains the NCAA's all-time leader with 80 career field goals as well as Washington's all-time leading scorer with 358 points.

Jaeger spent four seasons with the Bears from 1996-99, converting 44 of 60 field-goal attempts (73.3 percent).
