Hawks in the Hall

Published by Steve Campion. Category: Sports & Recreation

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, so let’s talk football.  Yesterday the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced five new members to its elite membership roll.  Among the Class of 2012: retired Seattle Seahawk Cortez Kennedy.  The star defensive tackle of the 1990s now joins two other local sports heroes who were previously honored in Canton, Ohio — home of the Hall of Fame.
