Russ Grimm's Speech

Russ Grimm's Speech At The Pro Football Hall Of Fame

First, Grimm began his football career as a linebacker and was adamantly opposed to moving to the line; as Grimm recalled saying, "I'll never play with my hand on the ground." Fortunately, Grimm received some sage advice from offensive line coach Joe Moore: "There's no greater feeling than moving a man from Point A to Point B, against his will."

Also, Grimm--ever the Hog--announced during his speech that he was embroidering the names of his fellow Hogs on the inside of his Hall of Fame jacket as a constant reminder of the guys who helped him achieve his now-immortalized success. It was a classy gesture from a consummate Hall of Famer.
