Congratulations to Dermontti Dawson for being elected to the 2012 NFL Hall of Fame. I had the honor and privilege to be a teammate of Dermontti for four of my six years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was the best offensive center that I have ever played against. Practicing against Dermontti for four years helped me elevate my game every day by going against the best. Dermontti played for 170 consecutive games, the second longest in Steeler history and was selected to seven straight Pro Bowls. Besides his skills as an athlete, Dermontti was an incredible role model for players, coaches and fans. He is one of the most humble and gracious players that I have ever had the chance to play with. Congratulations Dermontti!
