Former St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk will have someone very special to present him next month when he is enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Faulk's agent, Rocky Arceneaux of the Alliance Sports Management Group, will present Faulk for this honor next month.
According to Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal, only twice before have agents been presenters for Hall of Fame inductees. Deon Sanders will also be presented by his agent. Other presenters for this year's class of inductees includes a former college coach, a brother and a son.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony is Saturday, August 6. The current Rams squad is scheduled to play a glorified scrimmage the next day, kicking off the preseason. However, that game is in very serious jeopardy as the target for NFL owners and players to complete settlement talks is July 21. The Hall of Fame induction ceremonies will happen whether the game happens or not, even if, God forbid, the lockout was still in place at that point.
