Former Philadelphia Eagles great Brian Dawkins shows his appreciation for the team.
Just the other night, the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl LII victory was etched in stone (127 of them, to be exact.) Every member of the team and the staff received their long-awaited piece of jewelry to put the icing on the cake. In fact, the Eagles were even generous enough to give a few rings out to some former long-time staffers as well. That’s how much this first franchise Super Bowl win meant to the Eagles’ family.
One staffer in particular, though, couldn’t express how excited he truly was. We saw him pour his heart and soul into the game of football for 16 seasons, with 13 of them being in an Eagles uniform. And finally, he gets to wear the World Champions ring on his finger for the first time ever.
Former Eagles safety Brian Dawkins is having the year of his life. Just months before officially being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Dawkins attended a ring ceremony for the team that has retired his number and put it on display until the end of time. Although he never achieved the ultimate dream as a player, he is still extremely thankful towards the guys that helped make this Super Bowl win happen while he was still a part of the organization.
Dawkins thanks the Eagles:
Dawkins went from an Eagles player to a superfan when it was time for him to hang it all up. Although he was in the front office and an acting mentor, he still brought the passion of a fan while rocking his suit and tie around the team’s facilities. If there is one former player that deserves an Eagles Super Bowl ring, it’s this guy right here.
Unfortunately, his days with the Eagles are finally over, as he announced he would take on a new role in life. But at least Dawkins gets to go out on top with a Super Bowl ring. We’re sure the Eagles would’ve issued him one if they won later on down the line anyway, but the way it happened this time around is just so much better.
