Arguably the most beloved Green Bay Packers player in team history will be presented for his Hall of Fame speech by his beloved.
The Packers announced that Deanna Favre, the wife of Brett Favre, will present him when he receives induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio on Saturday, August 6.
They have stood by each others' sides in numerous challenging personal situations: Favre's addiction to painkillers in the early part of his career, his father's death in 2003, her breast cancer issues later that decade.
“Deanna is the best teammate I’ve ever had. She has been by my side throughout this journey and I’m so excited that she gets to play such an important role for me,” Brett said in a Hall of Fame statement. The Hall says Favre is the second wife to present her husband for a Hall of Fame induction, with Mike Singletary's wife Kim doing the same in 1998.
“Serving as Brett’s presenter is a great honor,” Deanna added in the same statement. “I am thrilled to be able share this special moment in time with him.”
Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers will present his former outside linebackers coach in Green Bay, Kevin Greene, for enshrinement as well. Greene played for Capers with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers.
WTMJ will present live online coverage of Favre and Greene's ceremony that night, plus present "Brett Favre: Titletown to Canton" Sunday from 3-5 p.m. on WTMJ before the Packers-Colts Hall of Fame Game.
