Ball Four: Football by Hugo Wild
This year’s Hall of Fame Game will feature the Colts and Packers competing against each other in the annual pre-season match.
The occasion is momentous for both teams.
Colts’ head coach Tony Dungy and wide receiver Marvin Harrison are receiving inductions into the NFL Hall of Fame. Dungy holds the distinctive title as the “winningest” coach in the team’s history plus has a Superbowl win up his sleeves. Harrison is an eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro. His achievement of 143 catches in a single season (2002) still remains as an unbroken team record.
The Packers will see Brett Favre’s induction into the Hall of Fame. The quarterback is an 11-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro. His other achievements include: MVP in three consecutive seasons of 1995, 1996 and 1997; leading his team to two Superbowls and winning one of them plus holding the record for most career pass completions, most career pass attempts, most career interceptions thrown, most consecutive starts by a player, most sacked, and most fumbles.
Watch the game on August 7th and cheer for your favorite side!
