NFL Hall Of Fame 2012: Willie Roaf Chooses Father To Present In Canton

Willie Roaf will finally realize his long-held dreams tonight in Canton, Ohio as he is inducted along with five others into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the NFL's weekend long festivities. The former offensive tackle was a Pro Bowl caliber player with both the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs, and he was named a member of the NFL All-Decade team for the 1990s and 2000s.

When selecting his presenter for his Hall of Fame induction tonight, Roaf said he had no doubts about who that person would be.

"In my entire college and pro career, my dad missed one home game and that’s because my brother had a game the same day. He drove from our home in Arkansas to New Orleans and Kansas City for every home game. It has to be him."

Roaf will be one of six players inducted, a list that also includes: Jack Butler, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy and Curtis Martin.
