Immokalee's Edgerrin James to join Colts' Ring of Honor
Special from the Naples Daily News:
Edgerrin James wasn't around to celebrate Indianapolis' Super Bowl title with his former teammates.
Some of those guys will likely be back in town this fall to see James rewarded with another big honor: Induction into the team's Ring of Honor.
The Colts said Tuesday that the unconventional running back that ran for a franchise-record 9,286 yards will join the greatest names in Indy history on Sept. 23 when the Colts host Jacksonville.
"It's one of those things that you set out to do and hope to have a career where you can leave a lasting imprint," James said in a statement issued by the team. "For me, it's super important because a lot of my young kids didn't get a chance to see me play. Now, at least they'll know their daddy could play a little bit."
James, an Immokalee High School graduate and University of Miami star, did more than just play, he teamed up with Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison to help resuscitate a moribund franchise.
