On Saturday, former Buccaneer great Warren Sapp was one of seven people selected for enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2013, marking one of the most momentous occasions in franchise history.
Super Bowl Sunday is annually the most anticipated day on the national sports landscape. This year, however, it was the Saturday before the big game that will live on as a landmark moment in the history of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
At 5:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that former Buccaneer great Warren Sapp has been chosen for induction into the Hall as part of the Class of 2013. Sapp will join the late Lee Roy Selmon as the two players in the Hall of Fame who spent the majority of their careers with the Buccaneers.
“This is a proud day for the Buccaneers organization and Bucs fans everywhere,” said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer. “Warren played the game with incredible ability and passion. He was a leader on one of the best defenses in NFL history and helped to redefine the defensive tackle position. It is a fitting honor that he will be recognized as one of the greatest to ever play, and we could not be happier for him.”
