Donnie Shell to Present Tony Dungy at HOF

Posted Feb 11, 2016

Dungy's former Steelers teammate will present him when he's enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.

On Saturday, former Buccaneer head coach Tony Dungy was selected for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s class of 2016. Dungy led the Buccaneers from 1996 to 2001 and had just one losing season in six years in Tampa Bay. He was a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the past two years before being selected this past weekend.

When Dungy is enshrined on August 6th in Canton, Ohio, he will be presented by his former teammate, Donnie Shell. The two played together in Pittsburgh in 1977 and 1978. After Dungy’s playing career concluded, he returned to Pittsburgh as a coach, where he and Shell were reunited from 1981 to 1983.

Over the course of his 14-year career, Shell, a safety, was selected to the Pro Bowl five times, was named an All-Pro three times and won four championships.

“Donnie Shell is a great person and he was quite a player,’’ Dungy told the Tampa Tribune. ”He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame someday.’’
