The Pittsburgh Steelers will have another member of their franchise inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer when Bill Nunn will get his bust in Canton, OH. Nunn, who was also inducted with former guard Alan Faneca, will be a part of a Steelers-centric celebration this summer when Troy Polamalu, Bill Cowher, Donnie Shell, Nunn and Faneca will all be inducted at the same time.
Nunn was always considered to be worthy of the Hall of Fame after all he did for the way he changed the way scouting takes place, but when it finally happened it was a surprise from Hall of Fame President David Baker to Nunn’s daughter, Lynell, which is worth watching.
Instead of the nominees being in the same hotel and getting “the knock” from Baker, this year, due to COVID-19, Baker went around the country and delivered the news to every player, coach or scout individually. In this situation, the “knock” was done virtually.
You can watch Lynell’s call from Baker below:
