Former Green Wave running back Matt Forte will be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. He is one of a class of ten Louisiana sports legends, which also includes former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and former Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington.

Forte is the second all-time leading rusher for Tulane, which included his legendary senior year where he rushed for 2,127 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2007. He then played a decade in the NFL, mostly with the Chicago Bears, earning two Pro Bowl honors.
