Dallas Cowboys' Darren Woodson Named Hall of Fame Semifinalist; eighth time lucky

The Hall named 25 modern-era semifinalists for the Class of 2024, including Woodson, from 173 candidates.

Woodson, the franchise's all-time leading tackler, four-time All-Pro, five-time Pro Bowler, and three-time Super Bowl champion, has been a semifinalist eight times and a finalist last year, a sign of development.

Witten returned to The Star in Frisco on Saturday for the TAPPS Division II high school state playoff playoffs. Witten and his sons Cooper and CJ led Liberty Christian to a 45-17 win over All Saints and on to the Waco championship game.

The Commanders lost 45-10 to the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, humiliating them. Washington also fired defensive back coach Brent Vieselmeyer. Del Rio was in his fourth season as Washington's DC and has been criticized throughout.

The claimed victim, now an Ivy League professor, sued Wiley, 48, in the New York Supreme Court for assaulting and raping her in fall 1994 at Columbia University.

Stay tuned for developments.
