Kobe Bryant gets credited by Terrell Owens in Hall of Fame speech

Lakers News: Terrell Owens Thanks Kobe Bryant In 2018 Pro Football Hall Of Fame Speech For Setting Gold Standard

This first weekend of August, as they have every year since the Hall opened in 1963, the doors were opened to admit a class of the greatest players and contributors of all time - this group including OLB Robert Brazile, GM Bobby Beathard, OG Jerry Kramer, MLB Brian Urlacher, S Brian Dawkins, WR Randy Moss, MLB Ray Lewis and WR Terrell Owens.

The six-time Pro Bowler compiled 15,934 receiving yards and 153 receiving touchdowns on 1,078 career receptions. Green passed away July 22, 2016. However, in my heart, I know that this is the right thing to do.

In a press conference after his induction, Owens said that going to Canton would have just been uncomfortable for him, "I'm not going to do a dog-and-pony show and smile at the people's faces and be fake", Owens said. They're life values. In applying what I learned in football for the rest of my life I've discovered we all win.

But his most powerful tribute went to his mother, whom he credited for showing him what a hard work ethic was growing up.

"I was not the biggest, the strongest or fastest, but my goals were clear", he said.

"I love everything about football: the friendships, the coaches, the teachers, the challenges, the opportunity to excel". "All y'all West Virginians who want to see this gold jacket meet me at the town center tomorrow at 4:30 [p.m.]". Not for one day did I not think God was with me.

Moss set numerous individual records during his career, including catching a rookie-record 17 touchdowns in 1998, a mark that still stands today.

During the 2007 season, his first with the team after being acquired in a trade from Oakland, Moss caught a record 23 touchdown passes from Tom Brady during the Patriots flawless regular season. The crowd included Owens' mother, former San Francisco 49ers teammates Derrick Deese and Marquez Pope, former Cincinnati Bengals teammate Kyries Hebert and two of his former National Football League position coaches, Ray Sherman and Larry Kirksey.

Some senators in the meeting struggled to make sense of the Koch network's new strategy of limiting its work for GOP candidates. The Koch network is only active in four Senate races, including Wisconsin, Tennessee, Florida and Missouri.

Owens had a remarkable 16-year career in the NFL.

"All of those individual awards don't really mean anything to me", Moss said. "Trust me when I tell you, it is family", said Urlacher. That after he helped the Eagles get to Super Bowl XXXIX the year before.

"I love you, too, " Owens said. You promised the state a stadium, and y'all delivered.
