It’s been a busy week for former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Tony Boselli, who is currently in Canton to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On Saturday, his bust will be officially revealed at the induction ceremony, but Friday was also a big day for Boselli, as he received his gold jacket.
Action News Jax reporter Ben Ryan was able to attend the gold jacket dinner and posted footage of Boselli’s big moment as he took the stage and received his jacket. Former Jags quarterback Mark Brunell, who will be Boselli’s presenter at the induction ceremony, was there to hand him his jacket for what is a historic moment in Jags history.
When Boselli is enshrined on Saturday, he will be the first Jaguar to enter the Hall of Fame. His well-deserved moment comes after he was the Jags’ first-ever draft pick in 1995 and was on the team until 2001.
Throughout Boselli’s tenure with the Jags, he was a three-time first-team All-Pro and a five-time Pro Bowler. These were honors that ultimately made him a player of all decades in the 1990s and also a member of the Jags Hall of Fame entitled “Pride of the Jags”.
Boselli endured a long wait to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as he was a semi-finalist for seven consecutive years. However, throughout that wait, the Jacksonville football community has spoken out to bring him in and can finally see him get the moment he’s long deserved on Saturday.
