As Walter Jones went through names to give his induction speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he constantly came back to his son Walterius.

His son was with him in New York during Super Bowl week when Jones found out he'd be honored in his first year of eligibility, and just the third player having spent their entire career with Seattle Seahawks to be inducted. It felt only right to have the 14-year-old give the speech.

Regarded as one of the best offensive tackles to ever play, Jones will get his gold jacket Saturday night and add to a year that has seen the Seahawks reach the pinnacle of the NFL.
