Get up close and personal with the 2010 Class of Enshrinees
CANTON, OH (Aug. 5, 2010) – Don’t miss the chance to get up-close-and-personal with the 2010 Class of Enshrinees – Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Dick LeBeau, Floyd Little, John Randle, Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith. Less than 24-hours after their induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the 2010 Class of Enshrinees will be center stage at the Canton Memorial Civic Center on Sunday, Aug. 8, for the Enshrinees GameDay Roundtable. Activities will begin with lunch at 12:30 p.m., followed by an unscripted and sentimental journey through the lives and careers of the Enshrinees. James Lofton has the distinction of being the first Pro Football Hall of Famer to emcee the Enshrinees GameDay Roundtable. A member of the Class of 2003, Lofton’s speed and “soft hands” made him an immediate deep-threat receiver from the moment he entered the pros in 1978 as the No. 1 draft pick of the Green Bay Packers. It was something that would remain throughout his long career with Green Bay, the Los Angeles Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles. Extremely durable, Lofton was the first NFL player to score a touchdown in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. He retired with a host of team and NFL accolades and records to his credit including appearing in eight Pro Bowl games, 1978-92, and three Super Bowls, 1989-92.
