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

"Induction means inclusion into an elite membership of exceptional players, coaches, officials, and administrators. They represent a group that has done so much to build the great game of Canadian football. To watch the pictures of HOF members scrolled across screens on induction evening was humbling and more than a little intimidating. I feel enormous pride in being a member and, in particular, sharing the honour with my fellow 'class of 2014' inductees - something we will hold in common for the rest of our lives. My recognition reflects the great players, coaches, staff, and administrators I had the honour of working with at my University. Hopefully our passion for the game made a difference to Canadian football and will inspire others to build on the great traditions of the game."--Larry Haylor

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 2014 as a builder.
