“I believe my experience at the Senior Bowl turned me from a mid-second or third-rounder into a first-rounder in the 2001 draft. I am truly honored to be inducted into the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame. Playing in this game ended up being the best decision of my life.”Statement from Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne
The ceremony is scheduled for June 23rd at The Grand Hotel Golf Club & Spa in Point Clear.
