What does it mean to you to be a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum?

"Considering that there have been over 100 years of football in Canada and only 278 people are a part of the CFHOF, being considered is a great honor and I'm definitely humbled by this accolade. It means that all the extra practice reps, long hours watching film studying my opponents ,two a day practices, countless hours training in the off season, countless hours spent rehabbing injuries, tackles, interceptions and hard hits were not in vain. This just goes to show you that "HARD WORK DOES PAY OFF!" This is also special because at 42 years old, I'm able to share this experience with my family and friends at an earlier stage in my life."--Eddie Davis

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 2015 as a player.
