The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers, the Official Provider of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence, will honor Centennial Class of 2020 members JIMBO COVERT and STEVE HUTCHINSON at ceremonies taking place during Week 8 NFL matchups.

Fans at the Chicago Bears contest against the San Francisco 49ers will see Covert receive his Ring of Excellence during a halftime presentation Sunday, Oct. 31. The game is slated to kick off at 1 p.m. ET at Soldier Field. Hall of Fame Chairman of the Board Dennis Nash and fellow Board member Rob Zmudka will represent the Hall at the ceremony.

During the “Sunday Night Football” matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys, Hutchinson will be represented his Ring of Excellence during a special halftime presentation. Retired Hall of Fame President & Executive Director David Baker will be on hand for the ceremony at U.S. Bank Stadium, which is set to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET. Hutchinson originally was presented his ring Oct. 4 in Seattle.

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols, along with the Hall of Fame Gold Jacket, created by Haggar, and the Bronzed Bust, that represent the elite status of being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Each living Enshrinee from the Centennial Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 received his Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and unveiled his Bronzed Bust during the 2021 Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls in early August.

All three representations of membership in sports’ most exclusive club will be displayed during special halftime presentations for the teams’ fans to pay tribute to these Hall of Famers. 

HALL OF FAME RING OF EXCELLENCE

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is created by Kay® Jewelers. The spectacular Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is set in 14K gold with a total diamond weight of 1.75 carats. However, it is much more than a beautiful piece of jewelry. Intricate details on the ring reflect the special significance of enshrinement.

  • The outer diamonds create a “stadium” effect surrounding the football-shaped diamond center.
  • The vibrant blue gemstone was selected both for appearance and meaning, as blue is often associated with confidence, power and integrity – all traits of these incredible legendary football icons.
  • Covert’s and Hutchinson’s Hall of Fame Rings of Excellence are customized to reflect their unique careers.
    • For Covert, a likeness of his Bronzed Bust, along with “Tackle” and “1983-1990” (his years in the NFL) appear on one side, while “Covert,” the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and “Class of 2020” are included on the other.
    • For Hutchinson, a likeness of his Bronzed Bust, along with “Guard” and “2001-2012” (his years in the NFL) appear on one side, while “Hutchinson,” the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and “Class of 2020” are included on the other.
  • Additionally, a special arbormark (or engraving) appears on the inside of each ring, which is their respective Enshrinee numbers: 330 for Covert and 335 for Hutchinson.
