The 11-time NFL Pro Bowler will be immortalized in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Oh. this weekend.
Roaf went to 11 Pro Bowls and was also named to the NFL's All-Decade team in the 90's and the 2000's. He was a six-time first team All-Pro selection as well as a three-time second team All-Pro selection and was inducted into the Arkansas, Louisiana and New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame.
His father, Dr. Clifton Roaf, an Arkansas dentist, will be his presenter in Canton and according to Roaf, was very instrumental in his success on the field according to this ESPN report:
"He was the one who really motivated me for my career," Roaf said. "He was always telling me what I needed to do to get to the next level. Even in college, he saw the potential I had before I did."
"I wouldn't be going into the Hall of Fame without my dad," Roaf said. "So, having him present me into it is the only way to do it."
