Where were you when you heard what was your reaction when you heard finally. That Andre was elected to the -- Well actually we were in new York and have we'd we'd get some tickets so that Connors programs doors. My -- -- and I was sitting out in the audience as they introduce the group and of course we were hoping in -- out. Once they announce that a great name he came up by that big screen. He was up on the big screens and Fran let out a big grain and -- the and -- get get Groban album was so so to just redo is well. I think it's -- out have we you know we asked him what it's like to be a teammate I asked Bill -- his perspective almost like whether you're proud daddy said it's he's more like a proud uncle. But -- what's it like when at from your perspective as a coach and you've obviously had their experiences before with Jim and Thurman and Bruce and James Lofton. What's it like to be the coach when you hear one of your players gets into the hall of fame. Well. FAA its result but to act. Up there and that greater effort for Andre and some of the others -- just mentioned it wasn't just one of my players they're guys that. I've maintained a relationship based in them now more than fifteen years since they coached. Cool cool I like that just with -- great play in the building but for the Derrick Caracter and what they've meant to the game with dejudder. And that they would like having your son. Delegates and then out of being remembered -- of -- You know you mentioned and your relationship with -- Andre for for the folks are listening bills fans know all about his football accomplishments they watched them play. What would you tell folks -- could tell can you tell something they didn't know about Andre maybe it's. Andre after football on the guy you know beyond football something -- they would not have known about a hundred but you do because you were close to him and are close to him. Well into that it wasn't just. A great football player he -- came from. A fourth run up rather obscure -- round draft choice out about the smaller cup football program cuts downstate. Exceeded that another receiver that year that the bill drafted ahead of him Chris -- get a good receiver. It but yeah you know -- -- clear -- time. That he would. It is great teammate it's fun to be -- and a lot grown a diet high character not just a great football player but a wonderful human being as well.

The the induction into the -- than you. And Jim and and and Bruce and Thurman and -- do you think down how much you think that changes the story line with how those teams are remembered if it hadn't changed already. You know I and I really can't say I always thought Obama DeSoto a fantastic bunch of at least ten people one. They were the essence of team what team should be. They were very yelled some more very extroverted and a more quiet but I don't want to warm up on the with a dvd guide. There. They all realize that their players around the more.
