Kenn to Be Inducted into Atlanta Sports HOF

This Throwback Thursday, we're taking at look some of the Falcons greats as we continue to celebrate 50 seasons, presented by Equifax.

Falcons legend Mike Kenn will be inducted into the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame on Friday night, along with Chipper Jones, Al Ciraldo, Clarence Scott and Kevin Willis to form the 2016 class.

Kenn, who started all 251 Falcons games from 1978 to 1994, was one of the most durable and consistent offensive lineman in NFL history. The 6-foot-7, 275-pound tackle garnered five Pro Bowl nods, was named to three All-Pro teams and had his No. 78 raised to the Georgia Dome rafters in 2008.

Now 60 years old, Kenn joins fellow Falcons Steve Bartkowski, Claude Humphrey, Tommy Nobis, Deion Sanders, Jessie Tuggle and Jeff Van Note in the Atlanta Sports HOF.
