Hall of Fame President Wishes Three Class of '16 finalists Luck before AFC Championship Game


Three Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2016 finalists were honored before the AFC Championship Game in Denver on Sunday. Denver Broncos greats Steve Atwater, Terrell Davis and John Lynch served as honorary captains for the coin toss before the Broncos win over the Patriots. The finalists were surprised with a video message that played on the scoreboard at Sports Authority Field at Mile High from Hall of Fame President David Baker who congratulated them on earning the great honor of becoming a finalist for the Hall of Fame.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016 will be elected on Saturday, Feb. 6 and  introduced to the nation for the first time during NFL Honors that airs nationally on CBS that evening. Tickets for the 2016 Enshrinement and the NFL/Hall of Fame go on sale earlier that morning at 10 am.

Here is the video of Baker’s remarks and the coin toss at last Sunday’s game.
