It will be a family affair at the Pro Football Hall of Fame for Derrick Brooks.

His oldest son, 15-year-old Decalon, will be the presenter for Brooks during the enshrinement ceremony Saturday.

Brooks wanted all four of his children to be involved in the task, but was told he had to settle on one presenter.

Following a group picture of the returning Hall of Fame players and the Class of 2014 Friday, Decalon said he was surprised, but honored, to be given the role.

"At first I was like, man, I can’t do that,'' Decalon said. "That’s too nervous for me.

“It’s a great honor to present him and going up there to unveil the bust with him. It’s going to be great experience with all the Hall of Famers coming back.''
