On Friday, August 1, 2014, the Class of 2014 Enshrinees -- Derrick Brooks, Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Walter Jones, Andre Reed, Michael Strahan, and Aeneas Williams -- were presented their gold jackets. And for the first time ever, the prestigious event was broadcast live by the NFL Network!
The jacket is one of three symbols of induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and it certainly was an emotional ceremony center stage before a capacity crowd.
The evening started with a cocktail party and dinner prior to the crowd offering warm congratulations to the Class of 2014, along with many returning Hall of Famers here to celebrate and to welcome the newest members. The evening’s festivities were emceed by Rich Eisen.
Nearly 25,000 men have played in at least one National Football League game, but since the Pro Football Hall of Fame was established in 1963, only 287 football players, coaches and/or contributors have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
