“It feels great. There’s really no way to describe the feeling in terms of what that meant to me. Every day you go out and meet new people that congratulate you. It’s a bit surreal because it happened so long ago. I played football 17 years ago and now you finally have this honor that hits you way down the line when you didn’t do anything else to improve your position with the Hall. I was retired. It’s kind of weird in that way, but I’m excited about it and I’m looking forward to it. I’m just grateful.”~Terrell Davis on making it to Canton.
