Polamalu, who will officially be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next year, will now also headline this Steelers Hall of Honor class. The team’s first-round pick in 2013 out of USC, Polamalu is widely regarded as one of the best safeties of all-time. He was named to eight Pro Bowls, four First-Team All-Pro teams, and won the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2010. The safety known for his high-flying style also earned two Super Bowl rings in his 12 seasons in Pittsburgh.
Greg Lloyd served a pivotal role in the Steelers defenses of the 90s. Lloyd recorded 53.5 sacks, 34 fumbles. His best seasons came from 1993-1995, each of which earned him First-Team All-Pro recognition.
Linebacker James Farrior signed with the Steelers as a free agent in 2002. He won two Super Bowls and was named First-Team All-Pro in 2004.
Mike Wagner and Dwight “Mad Dog” White provide the “Steel Curtain” era of the 1970’s representation in this year’s class. Wagner and White were both part of 4 Super Bowl championship teams during their decade with the Steelers. Statistically, Wagner recorded 36 interceptions and 12 fumble recoveries while White ranks 10th in franchise history with 46 sacks.
It was an honor to play with some of these greats!! This class is more than deserving, these men are leaders who set the example.
