We are just days away from Pro Football Hall of Fame weekend in Canton, Ohio.

For the first time ever, a Memphian will find his place amongst the NFL’s all-time best.

For Claude Humphrey, Saturday’s induction has been years in the making.

The Tennessee State alumni is credited with 122 career sacks while playing for the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles.

The night will be very emotional for Humphrey, whose daughter Cheyenne will present him for induction.

Humphrey’s wife won’t be able to enjoy the moment, Sandra Humphrey passed away last July after 45 years of marriage.
