Kevin Mawae was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame over the weekend and gave an incredible induction speech, in which he thanked his dad for instilling the work ethic in him that would eventually make him an 8-time Pro Bowl center and get him to Canton.
“People always ask “who were your greatest role models and who did you look up to growing up?” The answer has always been YOU” @KevinMawae on his parents being his greatest role models. #PFHOF19 pic.twitter.com/BxeGm0aCUt

Instead of soaking up the glory of his ultimate career achievement, Mawae showed up the very next day to attend the first day of Arizona State training camp, where he serves as the O-line coach. While still wearing his gold jacket, he delivered an unbelievable speech to his players about what it takes to be great. It turns out Mawae is pretty good at this speech thing.
WARNING: Make sure you’re not anywhere near a wall when you watch this or you’ll likely get down in a 3-point stance and run through it.
