BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Saints fans along the Coast got to spend an unforgettable weekend rubbing elbows with Black and Gold legends as a part of the second-annual Saints Hall of Fame Weekend in Biloxi. 

The festivities wrapped up Saturday evening with the Saints Hall of Fame Experience at the Great Lawn at Harrah's. Saints fans were able to get autographs from their favorite players, including a long line of patrons hoping to meet former Saints quarterback and radio personality Bobby Hebert.

This provided Saints players of past and present a great chance to interact with their friends along the Coast.

"People in this region love the Saints," said Jim Dombrowski, who played offensive line for New Orleans from 1986 to 1996. "They really don't have any professional franchises to really root for other than the Saints, and they're very, very passionate about it. That's one thing about the people in this area - when they're passionate about something, they're passionate about something."

"Especially as a younger guy, to be able to be out here around these Hall of Famers who (are) Saints legends," Saints kicker Will Lutz said. "To see how the fans interact with them, it kinda makes you - you want to be one of those guys in the future."
