Former New York Giants general manager George Young and eight other new members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame will receive special recognition with a TV program on the weekend of the NFL draft.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame will celebrate the careers and contributions of nine men – members of either the Centennial Class of 2020 or the Class of 2021 – during a 90-minute special that will air Saturday, May 1 on NFL Network and Tuesday, May 4 on ESPN2.
Those to be honored posthumously during “Hall of Famer Forever: Enshrinement Special” are Centennial Class of 2020 members Bobby Dillon, Winston Hill, Alex Karras, Steve Sabol, Duke Slater, Mac Speedie, Ed Sprinkle and George Young, as well as Bill Nunn from the Class of 2021.

Young was the Giants’ general manager from 1979-1997, leading them out of the “wilderness era” to two Super Bowl championships and changing the culture of the franchise.
Young was named NFL Executive of the Year five times and also won a Super Bowl and an NFL championship as an assistant coach with the Baltimore Colts from 1968-1974.
