Cris Carter Plays up Ohio Roots in Induction Ceremony

Cris Carter Plays up Ohio Roots in Induction Ceremony

Cris Carter grew up in Troy, OH and played wide receiver for the Ohio State Buckeyes, making his induction into the Canton, OH Pro Football Hall of Fame extra special.

The legendary former Eagles and Vikings receiver began his speech with a chant of “O-H-I-O” and closed by saying “Buckeye born and bred; now an H-O-F-er — even after I’m dead.”

Carter was introduced by his son Duron, and he spoke without prepared notes.

He was also clearly proud of the Hall of Fame that he was joining. “We have the greatest Hall of all the Halls,” Carter said emphatically.
the greatest day of my life.”

The receiver, who ranks #4 all-time on the receptions list and #8 in career touchdowns, is currently working as an analyst on ESPN.
