Zach Wiegert has earned one of the top honors in college football. 

The Fremont native and former Nebraska offensive lineman is going into the College Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2022 class. The latest class of inductees was announced on ESPN as part of its programming leading up to Monday night's national championship game.
