Pro Football Hall Of Famer Terrell Owens

One of the greatest football players to ever play the game came from right here at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, my hometown university. Chattanooga has something to be very proud of in Terrell Owens for his hard work and dedication to becoming one of the greats in professional Football.

It was an honor to see him be inducted into The Pro Football Hall of Fame today. There was a lot of love at McKenzie Arena and it was a homecoming of sorts. Past and present Mocs were in attendance to see one of the greats share his experiences and to perhaps inspire one of the student athletes in attendance to become a hall of famer themselves. Terrell did it his own way and that is another discussion for another day but I can say his acceptance speech was one of the most heart-felt, honest and authentic you would ever hear. As a Mocs fan from way back this was a once in a lifetime experience I will never forget.
