Former Bucs LB Derrick Brooks chose his son, Decalon Brooks, 15, to be his presenter at the Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony on Aug. 2 in Canton, Ohio. "I campaigned to get all four of my kids," Brooks said. "But unfortunately I couldn't pull it off. He's my oldest son. He's playing football now (at Gaither), and it's a special time when you think about that relationship with him." Other choices for presenters: former coaching greats John Madden (former Raiders punter Ray Guy) and Marv Levy (former Bills WR Andre Reed), Fox broadcaster Jay Glazer (former Giants DE Michael Strahan, a longtime friend), Walterius Jones (for his father, former Seahawks OT Walter Jones), Cheyenne Humphrey-Robinson (for her father, former Falcons DE Claude Humphrey) and Lawrence Williams (for his son, former Cardinals DB Aeneas Williams).
