Ring of Honor
The Detroit Lions announced that former #UVAFB wide receiver Herman Moore is being added to their Ring of Honor. Moore played 11 of his 12 NFL seasons with the Lions, and retired in 2003 as the franchise leader in receptions (670), receiving yards (9,174) and receiving touchdowns (62). Moore, who was surprised by the announcement from Lions president Rod Wood while hosting a pregame show Thursday on Fox2, remains the franchise single-season leader with 123 catches in his 14-touchdown season of 1995.
