irsay freeney

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay will present Dwight Freeney for enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer, the third time Irsay has done such honors.

The seven-member Class of 2024 will be enshrined on Aug. 3 in Canton, Ohio. The other inductees, and their presenters are:

–Randy Gradishar: Tom Jackson, former Denver Broncos teammate
–Devin Hester: Juanita Brown, mother
–Andre Johnson: Gary Kubiak, former Houston Texans head coach
–Steve McMichael: Jarrett Payton, longtime friend and son of McMichael’s teammate, Walter Payton
–Julius Peppers: Carl Carey, longtime friend, mentor and agent
–Patrick Willis: Ernicka Willis, sister

The presenter introduces the enshrinee via video and is present on stage as the bronze bust is uncovered.

Irsay previously presented Colts greats Marvin Harrison (2016) and Edgerrin James (2020).

It’s the second time for Payton, who was just 12 when he presented his father for enshrinement in 1993.

Ernicka Willis will become the second sister to fill the role. She follows Elaine Anderson, who spoke on behalf of her brother, Cliff Branch, when he was enshrined posthumously in 2022.
