During a 16 season career, Mawae was an 8-time Pro-Bowler and 7-time First-team All-Pro.
Last night during the game, he spoke about how much this moment means for him.
"It's been absolutely surreal,” Mawae said. “I still keep pinching myself. Monday was the first time that it really dawned on me that I'm getting into the Hall of Fame.”
Mawae is currently serving as an offensive analyst for the Arizona Sun Devil.
