There is so much going on within the NFL these days that it’s always a nice change of pace when you can write an article about the man who brought fame to the organization. I’m talking of course about Don Shula. It was announced the Don Shula has been awarded the 2013 Lamar Hunt award for excellence in the sport. Don Shula’s life long contribution to the sport is unparalleled.
In addition to the Shula honor, the NFL saw fit to recognize his greatest team. With Dick Anderson on hand, the NFL paid tribute to the 40th anniversary of the 1972 team.
But fear not that you didn’t see it. It will be rebroadcast on NFL Network Sunday, March 17, at 7 p.m. Eastern time.
