The Tez Set To Take On Canton

Cortez Kennedy didn’t say a lot during his Hall of Fame career with the Seahawks. This weekend, he will take center stage when he gives his induction speech.


The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio is set for this year’s Hall of Fame weekend.  Is Cortez Kennedy ready for the Hall?

The Seahawks’ eight-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle has known his weekend was coming since Feb. 4, when he was elected to the Hall. He has gone over his speech again and again.  He has invited more than 300 friends, family members and former teammates to his party that will be held after the nationally televised induction ceremony.

But while Kennedy likes a party as much as the next guy, this one requires him doing something that never has come naturally – getting up in front of several thousand people at Fawcett Stadium and talking about himself.

Kennedy said, “You know, I can talk a little bit, but I never did talk (a lot) over the years.”

The  eight time Pro Bowler said, “The wonderful thing is that those guys know when I talk from the heart, I’m better,” . “That’s what I am going to try and do Saturday night, just speak from the heart, just look at my notes and just roll with it.”

No doubt The Tez will handle it just like he did all of those opposing offensive linemen during his carreer.
