Ray Guy makes history as he enters Hall of Fame

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Ray Guy said it best during his enshrinement ceremony acceptance speech. Now, he noted, the Hall of Fame has a complete team.

On Saturday night in Canton, Ohio, the Southern Miss star made history. He became the first punter enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Southern Miss alum proudly wore his gold Hall of Fame blazer, and black and gold tie for this auspicious occasion.

In his speech, Guy admitted his enshrinement was long overdue. "Even though there will be no more games to play, records to set or championships to win," he said, "to be a part of this very special clubhouse called the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and knowing it's forever is beyond my wildest dreams."

Guy said he hopes his enshrinement will inspire young punters to someday join him in Canton, Ohio.

Also enshrined tonight, New Orleans native Aeneas Williams, Michael Strahan, Andre Reed, Derrick Brooks, Walter Jones, and Claude Humphrey.
