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

"Becoming a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame is nothing short of awesome. Being a permanent part of history in Canada and forever being enshrined with the legends and greats of Canadian football, is an incredible realization! I never thought I would be a part of a Canadian Institution, for all to view, for eternity. It is an honour and a privilege. My ultimate and happiest realization of being a Hall member is that my grandchildren and their children's children, will always be able to visit and see their grandfather, fixed in time, in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame."--Dan Ferrone

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 2013 as a player.
