Honored Posthumously by Hewitt's Daughter Mary Ellen Cocozza
Mary Ellen Cocozza:

Thank you very much. It's a great privilege and honor to be here in Canton accepting this award on my father's behalf. He is being recognized with such great men that have made football the American tradition it is today. My only regret is that my father cannot be here to reap the harvest of his efforts, but I know he is here in spirit. Thank you so much.
