Just a day after Pittsburgh Steelers former head coach Bill Cowher, DB Donnie Shell, and OG Alan Faneca all received their gold jackets for being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, it was finally S Troy Polamalu‘s turn on Saturday evening. In such a monumental moment resulting from Polamalu’s impact he’s had on the game and on Steeler Nation, our Yinzhers Podcast co-hosts summed it up best:
Troy getting into the hall is one of the most emotional experiences we’ve had in a while. So much love for that man.

Polamalu is a 2x Super Bowl Champion, the 2010 Defensive Player of the Year, a 4x First-Team All-Pro, a 2x Second-Team All-Pro, an 8x Pro Bowler, and a member of the 2000’s All Decade Team, as well as the Steelers All-Time Team. Truly, an amazing player and man, on and off the field. I couldn’t be happier for this man!
Without further ado, WATCH this monumental moment:
