Steelers Announce the Inaugural Class of Hall of Honor

The Steelers announced plans a few weeks ago for a new ‘Hall of Honor’ that will honor players, coaches, and contributors that have had a significant hand in building and maintaining this storied franchise.

On Tuesday the Steelers announced the inaugural class that included every member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame that had a significant impact on the franchise. They also added former running back and coach Dick Hoak who spent 45 years combined as a player and coach with the team.

Also joining the class are Donnie Shell, LC Greenwood, and Andy Russell who all should have a place in Canton, Ohio, but have been kept out because of the sheer number of players from those 70’s Steelers teams inducted into the Hall of Fame.

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!
