There was a big moment during of Thursday night’s Colts-Steelers games as former Colts receiver Marvin Harrison and head coach Tony Dungy received their Hall of Fame rings during a ceremony at halftime.
Dungy and Harrison were inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August. Check out footage of the ceremony and post-ceremony interviews below, via WTTV-4 Indianapolis:
It was a unique moment for Dungy, who coached the Colts to a Super Bowl win but also played for and was an assistant coach with the Steelers.
“The Steelers was where I started my career and got so much foundation from the Rooney family and from Chuck Noll and nine hall of fame teammates,” Dungy said. “Indianapolis was where I ended my career with the Irsay family and a Super Bowl Championship and some great players so it really was a special night for me. It is one of those things that you don’t even dream about when you are young.
“You dream about making it to the NFL and possibly winning the Super Bowl but you never dream about these kinds of things and the (Pro Football) Hall of Fame. To go in with Marvin (Harrison) in the same year and to have this kind of finishing ceremony and getting the rings on this night was really extra special.”
For Harrison, it was a chance to come back to the city where he spent his entire NFL career and relive some old memories.
“It is always good to come back here to Indianapolis,” Harrison said. “(There are) a lot of memories and a lot of people that still work here in the stadium that you get a chance to see that I haven’t seen in years. It is always good to come back to this town. It is like a family.”
