When former Packer Charles Woodson stepped up to the podium to accept his induction into the Packer Hall of Fame last night, he made mention of how it would not be possible for him to have had the impact he did if not for opponent’s fear of who he was being inducted alongside.
“He was a lockdown guy, man!” Woodson said about fellow defensive stalwart Al Harris.
Both Woodson and Harris were inducted last night, and seemed to have nothing but praise for the other when it was their turn to speak.
“It’s the icing on the cake” Harris said on getting inducted with Woodson. “Just thinking back to when Wood got here, there were days where we took every single rep in training camp…for us to turn the page years later to here, it’s awesome.”
Woodson played a big role in the 2010 Super Bowl XLV championship team with his memorable halftime speech in the big game after sustaining an injury, while Harris became a free agent during that season after starting it on the PUP list. But Harris still left his mark on the team, earning two Pro Bowl selections and a second-team All-Pro selection in 2007.
