One of the biggest highlights from Thursday night’s game for the Indianapolis Colts was the fact that they were able to honor two of their franchise’s legends, as Hall of Famers Marvin Harrison and Tony Dungy were on hand for a halftime ceremony in which they received their Hall of Fame rings.
Both men were inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this past August as part of the Class of 2016, and there was a Colts reunion in Canton for that event earlier this summer. But as is the norm, Harrison and Dungy also were presented with the rings at a halftime event in front of their home crowd.
Harrison and then Dungy were presented to the crowd, and then Colts owner Jim Irsay and Hall of Fame president David Baker said a few words and presented the Hall of Fame rings. After that Harrison and Dungy were given a chance to address the crowd before posing for pictures with their new rings.
Here are some pictures from the ceremony, as well as a look at the rings:

Though the game wasn’t anything special for the Colts, it was great seeing the franchise honor two men who were. Marvin Harrison and Tony Dungy are both Hall of Famers, and on Thursday night the franchise was able to honor them in front of the home crowd in Indianapolis.
