Players like Tony Gonzalez, Ed Reed and Champ Bailey made the headlines. But another inductee to the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s class of 2019 was longtime center Kevin Mawae.

Mawae is in his second year with the Arizona State coaching staff, helmed by his former coach on the New York Jets, Herm Edwards.
