Chris Hanburger selects son as HOF presenter

Former Redskins linebacker Chris Hanburger has selected his son, Chris, to be his presenter at his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month.

Hanburger played for the Redskins from 1965 to 1978 and earned first-team All-NFL honors four times. He was voted to nine Pro Bowls.

Hanburger and fellow inductee Ed Sabol, former chairman of NFL Films, chose to have their sons introduce them. Steve Sabol, now president of NFL Films, will present his father.

Shannon Sharpe will be presented by his brother Sterling Sharpe. Chicago Bears defensive end Richard Dent has selected Joe Gilliam, who coached him at Tennessee State.

Two 2011 inductees have selected their agents. Marshall Faulk will be presented by Rocky Arceneaux, and Eugene Parker will present Deion Sanders.

Former Los Angeles Rams great Les Richter, who is being inducted posthumously, is being represented by his son, Jon.

The 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6 and will be aired both on NFL Network and ESPN.
