Harold Carmichael’s wait is almost over
A Philadelphia Eagles legend will finally get his due in Canton this summer. Eagles wide receiver Harold Carmichael was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame last season, but because of COVID-19, there was no ceremony to celebrate his historic career. Luckily, Carmichael will still have that opportunity when he is enshrined in just a few weeks on August 7th.
The former seventh-round pick had an incredible 14-year career in the NFL, 13 of those with the Eagles. With 182 games played, Harold recorded almost 9,000 yards and 79 touchdowns with four Pro-Bowl nominations. Another infamous record held by Harold Carmichael is his 129 game streak of recording a reception, which remains unbroken.
“There was nothing else for me to do but wait. I couldn’t do it on my own. I had to wait. It’s been a very trying time waiting. Again, waited over 35 years. One more year didn’t hurt me.”
Joining Harold Carmichael on August 7th is Isaac Bruce and Troy Polamalu, along with numerous others from the 2020 class, while Peyton Manning, Calvin Johnson, and Charles Woodson headline the class of 2021. The last Eagles to be named to the Hall of Fame were Terrell Owens and Brian Dawkins back in 2018.
