At a packed press conference outside the entrance to the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome today, the event marked a special, well-deserved day to two individuals who have meant a lot to the franchise and the region’s sports scene.

First it was announced that the Saints Hall of Fame Media Selection Committee had elected former Saints defensive tackle La’Roi Glover for induction in 2013. Following Glover’s announcement, longtime New Orleans Times-Picayune columnist Peter Finney was introduced as the 2013 recipient of the organization’s Joe Gemelli Fleur de Lis award, presented to an individual who has contributed to the franchise and had an impact on it.

What especially hit him is that he is now recognized for his accomplishments alongside such legends as a pair of Pro Football Hall of Fame members in linebacker Rickey Jackson, who served as his pass rush coach for two seasons and tackle William Roaf.

Glover was elated about the honor upon being informed and first thanked team Owner/Chairman of the Board Tom Benson, his coaches, teammates and members of the club’s front office for helping him attain such heights.
