With tonight’s announcement of the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, we finally know who will be enshrined into Canton for eternity next August.
2018 HOF class:
With two of the most feared tacklers of their time — Lewis and Dawkins — also comes two of the most wired trash-talkers and hype men in all of football. Not much gets you more hyped for three hours of football than Lewis or Dawkins coming out of the tunnel prior to kick-off. And, with that, comes a whole slew of incredible YouTube hype videos.
We thought this was the perfect time to share some of our favorites. Enjoy:
I suppose it didn’t hurt that the two feared hitters had the resumes to back up their legendary careers.
