Pro Football Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony: Deion Sanders, Richard Dent 'Represent' 49ers

New, comments

Earlier this evening the Pro Football Hall of Fame conducted their induction ceremony. The 2011 class of honorees included Deion Sanders, Marshall Faulk, Richard Dent, Chris Hanburger, Les Richter, Ed Sabol, and Shannon Sharpe. The 49ers didn't have a direct representative this year, but Deion Sanders and Richard Dent were both on the 1994 Super Bowl winning squad. Richard Dent was nearing the end of his career as 1994 saw him play only two games.

Deion Sanders on the other hand had arguably his greatest season as a member of that 1994 49ers squad. He finished the season with six interceptions, three of which he returned for touchdowns. More imortantly, he was a lockdown force on his side of the field and was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the only time in his career.

You can read through Prime Time's induction speech over at SB Nation Atlanta. In the meantime, here are some highlights of his time with the 49ers. The little ad in the middle goes away at the one minute mark.
