Six HOFers to toss coin at Super Bowl

01/26/2004


Six members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame - Earl Campbell, Ollie Matson, Don Maynard, Y.A. Tittle, Mike Singletary and Gene Upshaw - will represent the state of Texas as they participate in the pre-game coin toss for Super Bowl XXXVIII on Sunday.

 
The Super Bowl coin used for the pre-game toss traditionally is sent to the Hall of Fame.
The state of Texas has produced many NFL greats, including 24 of the 221 members enshrined in Canton, Ohio. The coin will be minted by Highland Mint and will feature the Super Bowl XXXVIII logo on one side and the two competing teams' logos— the NFC Champion Carolina Panthers and the AFC Champion New England Patriots - on the other side.
