We will always be huge fans of Alex Smith around here for the incredible job he did in helping to turn around the fortunes of a miserable franchise and set the course for sustained success under head coach Andy Reid. That's what made this such a feel-good moment on television to see Smith earn the ultimate honor from his college football days.

Smith and Randy Moss were helping to provide analysis on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown and after making a quick announcement that ESPN would be announcing the next class on Monday for the College Football Hall of Fame, they actually decided to surprise their guests.

First, former Marshall great Randy Moss was given a special football honoring him as an inductee for 2024 as part of the next incoming class of former college football greats. Moss thanked a few folks but the team didn't leave Alex Smith waiting too long before he found out about his own inclusion.

You can watch the video here:

Smith played only two full seasons of college football but was so dominant for the Utes that he was able to climb to be the No. 1 overall selection in his draft class back in 2005. Smith went 21-1 as a starting quarterback, and as a junior, he threw for nearly 3,000 passing yards with 32 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions at Utah back in 2004.

Congratulations to Alex for this incredible achievement (and thanks to ESPN for allowing us to see this meaningful moment).
