Passion, Integrity, Playmaking, Longevity, Respect.
These are the marks of a Hall of Fame player. These are the marks of Brian Dawkins.
Over the course of his 16 NFL seasons, Brian Dawkins was a star. His unique blend of toughness, athleticism, savvy, and smarts changed the safety position forever. He was elected to the Pro Bowl nine times. He was All Pro four times. In part because his intensity is unmatched:
"The NFL will miss a player as talented, ferocious, and determined as Brian Dawkins. He was one of the most dedicated and hardest working players I have ever coached. Whether it was on the practice field, the film room or the weight room, Brian always put in the extra hours it took to become the star player that he was. And he transferred all of that and more onto the field on Sundays." - Andy Reid
Brian Dawkins is an icon. He's the heart and soul of an Eagles team that went to 5 NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl. His love for the fans is legendary...and now he needs our help!
According to the official website, there are only 4 safeties that have made it to the Hall of Fame. The most recent addition, Kenny Easley, wasn't elected until 20 years after his retirement. It's hard to make the Hall as a safety. That's where you come in!
