Charlie Hudson, RB, @Alecbama

 

182 GP (S6-S7 Seattle Predators; S8-S15 Los Angeles Reign; S16-S18 New York Herd)

3,216 Carries, 12,507 Yards, 132 TDs, 3.9 YPC; 795 Catches, 5,649 Yards, 43 TDs, 7.1 YPC; 352 Pancakes, 19 Sacks Allowed

2 Time EFL Champion

1 Playoff Most Valuable Player

1 Running Back of the Year

1 Comeback Player of the Year

 

Charlie Hudson exemplifies the meaning of working hard all throughout his career. With 182 games played over thirteen seasons, Charlie Hudson never stopped working to lead his team to new heights. Drafted in Season 6 from the 8th overall pick to the Seattle Predators, Hudson was expected to perform right away. Hudson did not shy away from the challenge and took the leading spot on their rushing offense, getting the sixth-most rushing yards that season. In his second season, Season 7, he was able to collect the Running Back of the Year award. When you look at Hudson’s career, with only one Running Back of the Year, and Comeback Player of the Year Award, it might not look too impressive, but by the time Hudson retired in Season 18, he was the career leader in rushing attempts and rushing yards. Hudson split time at running back and tight end, which was a big factor in amassing 5,649 receiving yards and 43 receiving touchdowns alongside his rushing yard totals. Hudson was a bit of a journeyman, playing for three teams over the span of his career. He found the most success with the Los Angeles Reign, where he was able to lead them to two EFL Championship Titles and four title games. Charlie played at a time where there were many great running backs (including Hall of Famers Tugg Bote and David Moriarty) but he was still able to lead his team to success. By the end of his career, he had accumulated 12,507 rushing yards, 3.9 yards per carry, and 132 touchdowns. Charlie Hudson is a Michigan alumni, who in his final season in the NCAA was able to lead them to the National Championship, showing his success both in the big leagues and in college. Hudson will enter the Hall of Fame as a player that was both clutch and skilled enough to lead his team to success at both levels of the game.

Ray Ray Foster, LB/SS, @Alecbama

 

196 GP (S6-S16 Los Angeles Reign; S17 Memphis Mambas; S18-S19 New York Herd)

1,243 Tackles (27 TFL), 65 Sacks, 27 INT, 67 PD, 22 FF, 11 FR, 6 TD, 2 Safety

2 Time EFL Champion

 

If you are a veteran of the EFL, then the name Ray Ray Foster will be familiar to you. With a fourteen year long career and 196 games played, Ray Ray Foster was a player that has seen it all. At the time of his retirement, Foster was the leader in career games played, forced fumbles, and fumble recoveries. Before the EFL, he was an alumni of the Michigan Wolverines, who won a national championship in his last season. Foster started off his EFL career in Los Angeles Reign, and over his career has made his way through two other teams: the Memphis Mambas and the New York Herd. The first overall pick in the Season 6 Draft, Foster already had high expectations placed upon him. Even though Foster was drafted a strong safety, he was mainly used as a linebacker, swapping between the two to be most effective in his team’s defense. As a defensive hybrid, Foster had stats all around the place. Currently, Foster is third in career tackles with 1243 tackles, first in both fumbles forced and recovered, has two safeties, and managed six defensive touchdowns. In his Season 9 peak, Foster was able to collect 5 forced fumbles and 15 sacks, cementing his legacy as an elite pass-rusher. Teaming up with his offensive counterpart, Charlie Hudson, Ray Ray Foster was able to lead the Los Angeles Reign to two EFL Championships, and multiple more championship game appearances. Unfortunately for Ray Ray Foster, he was not able to collect any awards during his tenure in the EFL. Instead, he was consistent throughout his career, never taking a season off. Ray Ray Foster will join the Hall of Fame as only the third safety ever, showing how big this accomplishment is. Foster will be remembered by his impact on the league’s history, embracing his role as the first prominent linebacker-safety hybrid.
