On Tuesday, December 8, the National Football Foundation will induct its class of 2015. The list of inductees impresses for the body of its accomplishments and depth of character. That Dad will be enshrined with – and the recipient of – such an incredible honor is humbling, meaningful, and a testament to how Rob Lytle played football – with his whole heart.
Leading into the event, Rich McGowan of the Fremont News-Messenger has written several pieces that highlight Dad’s character, enduring legacy, and how bittersweet these celebrations are for our family.
The events on Tuesday will include a press conference for all inductees (and yours truly) in the morning and the ceremony in the evening. Live streams of both the Annual Awards Dinner (link here), starting at 8 p.m. ET, and the morning press conference (link here), starting at 9 a.m. ET, will be available on ESPN3. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET, the American Sports Network will produce and nationally televise a live Red Carpet Show leading up to the dinner ceremonies. Visit americansportsnet.com for a full list of stations and times throughout the country.
Full information on viewing all events is available on the National Football Foundation site: Hall of Fame Ceremonies.
And for those interested in more on my bond with my father, To Dad, From Kelly offers an honest, heartfelt look into our relationship.
