For the third time former head coach Marv Levy will be presenting a former player to the Hall of Fame with an induction speech. After both Thurman Thomas and Jim Kelly asked their former coach to do so, now Andre Reed has followed suit.

“I’m of course tremendously honored and pleased,” Levy told Buffalobills.com. “I found out about it on Sirius XM NFL Radio because I was part of the segment and Andre asked me right then and there.”

Levy, who is a natural writer, will have three minutes to speak about Reed before the induction moves to the player's speech.

“With considerable time limitations it’s a challenge,” said Levy. “Winston Churchill once apologized for giving too long a speech. He said, ‘I didn’t have time to prepare a short one.’ To get in what you want to get with time limitations is a challenge, but nevertheless it’s one you have to rise up to and meet.”

The Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony is tentatively set for early August.
