Great running back Brian Westbrook, along with 77-year-old Maxie Baughan, who played for the Eagles in the 1960s, were inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame at halftime of last night’s Eagles-Giants game.
“I think it’s going to be a great situation. I’m excited about it,” Westbrook said. “I’m excited about the opportunity but I’m also humbled and I’m a little bit overwhelmed. This is a major thing. I’m talking about, I’m getting mentioned with [Donovan] McNabb, [Brian] Dawkins, Maxie Baughan, [Steve] Van Buren, Chuck Bednarik. These are the best that ever played in Philadelphia and to have my name mentioned with those guys is a humbling thing.”
Westbrook was selected by the Eagles in the third round of the 2002 draft out of Villanova. After injuries in high school, the 5-10 Westbrook went to Villanova, where he played for longtime Wildcats head coach Andy Talley.
