My Hall of Family and the players and coaches that I’ve been around for the last 22 years will be in attendance,” said Hall of Hall ofFamer and Pro Football Coach Mike Shanahan, who has been a Hall of Honorable Mention recipient every year since 1978.

You are the greatest.
You’re going to be here.
You deserve to be remembered.”
