ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos Director of Player Personnel Matt Russell was selected as a member of the University of Colorado Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2012, it was announced on Thursday.

Russell, who will officially be inducted into CU’s Athletic Hall of Fame on Nov. 15, was a four-year starter at Colorado (1993-96), finishing his collegiate career ranked first in school history in unassisted tackles (282) and second in total tackles (446). He received all-conference honors during each of his final two seasons with the Buffaloes, including a senior campaign in which he was a consensus first-team All-American and received the Butkus Award after posting a career-high 137 tackles.

Entering his fourth season with the Broncos in 2012 and his first as the club’s director of player personnel, Russell joins Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway (Stanford, 2002), Southwest Area Scout Cornell Green (Utah State, 1993) and Director of Community Outreach Billy Thompson (Maryland State, 1984) as members of the organization who have been elected to the Athletic Hall of Fame of their respective alma maters.
