Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Newsome adds another Hall of Fame to be a part of.

Ozzie Newsome's illustrious career on the gridiron and front office began somewhere, and that somewhere was at Colbert County High School in Leighton, Ala.

Based on his accomplishments at the high school level, which led to great things at the University of Alabama and the NFL, Newsome was inducted into the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) National High School Hall of Fame in Boston on Wednesday, per The Montgomery Advertiser.

Newsome was a three-sport athlete in high school, excelling in football, basketball and baseball.

While he was a standout in all three sports, football was his true calling, where he became one of the top tight ends in the country. He finished his high school playing days with 173 catches and 23 touchdowns.

Newsome has previously been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame.
