The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers, the Official Jewelry Store of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, will honor LARRY CSONKA (Class of 1987), BOB GRIESE (Class of 1990), LARRY LITTLE (Class of 1993), DAN MARINO (Class of 2005), DWIGHT STEPHENSON (Class of 1998) and PAUL WARFIELD (Class of 1983) during the Dolphins’ regular season finale on New Year’s Day. The special presentation will take place at halftime of the Dolphins’ Week 17 matchup against the New England Patriots at Hard Rock Stadium.
The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols that represent the elite status of being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Each Hall of Famer received their Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and unveiled their Bronzed Bust during their respective Enshrinements. All three symbols – the Gold Jacket, the Bronzed Bust, and the Ring of Excellence – will be displayed during the halftime presentation during which the legendary Dolphins players will be presented with their official Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence. Csonka, Griese, Little, Marino, Stephenson and Warfield will also wear their Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and the Bronzed Busts of these Heroes of the Game will be temporarily removed from the Hall of Fame to make their way to Miami for the ceremony.
As part of the partnership between the Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers, all living members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame will receive the new Ring of Excellence that was designed by Kay® Jewelers in 2013. This year marks the second of three seasons in which the Ring of Excellence will be presented to the Hall of Famers in special ceremonies. Hall of Famer and former Dolphins Head Coach DON SHULA (Class of 1997) received his new Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence last season during a special halftime ceremony in Miami. He will also be in attendance for Sunday’s ring ceremony.
