Pro football hall of fame enshrinement speech
September 7, 1963

Thank you Don (presenter Don Miller), ladies and gentlemen, honored guests. In the past, I've been asked many times if I wouldn't like to return to football. Well, I could tell you right now if I had to face what I've got sitting behind me, nothing could ever get me off the farm. I've had a lot of thrills in my life, but I can say sincerely that to be so honored here today and with this fine group, this is a thrill of all thrills. And I want to thank all you people and all the writers who made this possible. Thank you.
