NEW YORK, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Fox Sports broadcaster Troy Aikman was among six people named to the Board of Directors for the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.

NFF President Steven Hatchell also named CBS Sports' Jim Nantz, Apple Computer Chief Executive Officer Timothy Cook, Collegiate Licensing Company founder Bill Battle and BP Capital Chairman T. Boone Pickens to the board.

"It's an honor to welcome these six individuals to our board," Hatchell said in a statement on the NFF Web site. "If you were to name the top leaders in collegiate athletics and our nation's business communities, this group would be on everybody's short list."

Aikman was a 2008 inductee into the College Football Hall of Fame and in 2006 he was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.

He was a quarterback at Oklahoma and UCLA in college and led the Dallas Cowboys to three Super Bowl titles in 12 NFL seasons.
