Several Steelers Make Hall Of Fame Modern Era Nomination List

Several Steelers Make Hall Of Fame Modern Era Nomination List

The Pro Football Hall Of Fame announced their list of 108 modern era players who are up for election for this year’s class today. The list included several Steelers and one former Steelers coach you may know.

Former guard Alan Faneca leads the class of former Steelers most likely to make it this year. Faneca made it into the final 15 last season but came up short.

Hines Ward makes his first appearance on the list in his first year of eligibility. He’s in a loaded list of wife receivers and if he is going to make it in he may have to wait ten years like teammate Jerome Bettis.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
