This weekend, the Hall of Fame game takes a back seat for the Indianapolis Colts franchise as they celebrate the careers of two of their legends, wide receiver Marvin Harrison and head coach Tony Dungy. Both men are being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as members of the Class of 2016 this weekend, and on Thursday night the gold jacket ceremony was held.
At the banquet, Harrison, Dungy, and the rest of the class received their gold jackets to further symbolize their status among the game’s all-time greats. It was without a doubt a special evening for all involved.

Gold Jackets. It doesn't happen often that a coach goes in with one of his players. The Lord allowed me to do it. pic.twitter.com/3gKOmB1PjX— Tony Dungy (@TonyDungy) August 5, 2016
