The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s exhibit, Gridiron Glory, The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is headed to Myrtle Beach in 2022. South Carolina will be among a select few states that get to host some of football’s finest artifacts. Current and future fans will get a close-up look at all-time greats like Herb Adderley and Johnny Unitas.
Football fans can also see jerseys from former NFL players Emmitt Smith, Bruce Smith, and Warren Sapp. Altogether it will take thousands of items to fill an entire exhibit hall – similar exhibits are planned for Canton in 2024 (the 50th anniversary of their opening). Even though they may not agree on who was or should be inducted into the Hall, everyone can agree on one thing: This year’s Super Bowl contained enough drama for 10 seasons.
During his 15-year career with New England and Houston, Hannah played in three Super Bowls and was selected for five Pro Bowls. Hannah is part of a larger class of four Hall of Famers who will be inducted into Canton in August 2016: Kicker Morten Andersen, safety Kenny Easley and wide receiver Don Maynard. Gridiron Glory debuted at Fawcett Stadium in Canton last August, providing fans an opportunity to relive football’s most exciting moments. The show later traveled across North America and Europe before returning to Canton during summer.
