It’s been a busy week for former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Tony Boselli, who is currently in Canton to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On Saturday, his bust will officially be revealed during the Enshrinement Ceremony, but Friday was a big day for Boselli, too, as he received his gold jacket.

Action News Jax reporter Ben Ryan was able to attend the Gold Jacket Dinner and posted footage of Boselli’s big moment as he took the stage and received his jacket. Former Jags quarterback Mark Brunell, who will be the presenter for Boselli in the Enshrinement Ceremony, was there to give him his jacket for what is a historic moment in Jags history.

When Boselli’s enshrined on Saturday, he will be the first Jaguar to go into the Hall of Fame. His well-deserved moment comes after he was the first-ever Jags draft selection in 1995 and was with the team until 2001.

Throughout Boselli’s tenure with the Jags, he was a three-time first-team All-Pro and a five-time Pro Bowler. Those were honors that eventually made him a 1990s All-Decade Player and also a member of the Jags’ Hall of Fame entitled the “Pride of the Jags.”

Boselli endured a long wait to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as he was a semifinalist for seven consecutive years. However, throughout that wait, the Jacksonville football community was vocal about getting him in and will finally get to see him get the moment he’s long deserved on Saturday.
