ESPN’s Randy Moss Named to Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018

Published

on

ESPN NFL analyst Randy Moss was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018 today in his first year of eligibility. Moss played 14 seasons (1998-2012) with five teams, most notably with the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots. Now in his second season as an ESPN analyst, Moss appears on Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown.

An inductee in the Vikings’ Ring of Honor in 2017, Moss will be on-set at the IDS Crystal Court in Minneapolis on Sunday morning as part of ESPN’s Super Bowl LII edition of Postseason NFL Countdown (9 a.m. – 1 p.m. CT). After the Philadelphia Eagles-New England Patriots game, Moss will be on the field at U.S. Bank Stadium for the post-Super Bowl NFL PrimeTime (9:30 p.m. CT) with Chris Berman and Steve Young.  

ESPN colleagues share their thoughts and congratulations on Moss’s election to the Hall of Fame:

Seth Markman, ESPN senior coordinating producer, NFL studio shows:

“Our entire ESPN team is thrilled for Randy, especially for him to get this honor in Minnesota where he is so revered by Vikings fans. It means so much to him and his family because he truly cares about the history of the game and his impact on the NFL. I have seen first-hand the immense respect that players and coaches have for Randy around the league. Now this is the ultimate validation of his career.”

Hall of Fame NFL host Chris Berman, who covered Moss throughout his playing career and worked with him on Countdown:

“Randy was the rare player who was a game-changer the moment he came into the NFL. He kept his coaches, quarterbacks, and teammates up all night before the game in anticipation, while keeping opposing coaches and defensive players up all night in trepidation. He was a highlight waiting to happen.”

Charles Woodson, legendary NFL defensive back and Moss’s ESPN studio teammate:

“Randy Moss made defensive coordinators change game plans and sometimes abandon philosophies. When you can change the way a coach sees the game, who has been around the game all their life, you are undoubtedly a first ballot HOFer.”

The 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony will be in Canton, Ohio, in August and televised by ESPN.

Kobe Bryant, the retired Los Angeles Lakers great, was killed Sunday in a helicopter crash in Southern California, according to reports. He was 41. Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria Onore, known as GiGi, was among the victims.

The former Los Angeles Lakers star’s death as well as his daughter’s was initially reported by TMZ and confirmed by several outlets, including ESPN. The crash occurred around 10 a.m. local time in foggy conditions above Calabasas, about 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The crash ignited a brush fire, making it difficult for firefighters and emergency personnel to get to the crash site.

Bryant’s wife Vanessa was not on board, according to reports. The couple have four daughters, including an infant.

Bryant, an 18-time All-Star, won five NBA championships during his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Bryant retired as the third-leading score in NBA history in 2016.

Nicknamed “The Black Mamba,” Bryant is generally regarded as one of the best players in league history because of his all-around game.

Bryant, whose #8 and #24 jersey numbers were both retired by the Lakers, lead the league in scoring twice, won the Most Valuable Player award in 2008 and was selected to the NBA’s All-Defensive team 12 times.

All five people aboard the chopper were killed. No other information about the victims’ identities was immediately available
