Legendary Philadelphia Eagles safety Brian Dawkins has officially been named one of 12 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018. This is the second year in a row Dawk has made it to the finalist stage.

There’s no question Dawkins deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Earlier this season, BGN Radio actually announced a campaign called “Put Dawkins in the Hall.”

Last month, BGN Radio’s Vince Quinn interviewed Hall of Fame voter Paul Domowitch of the Daily news to talk about Dawk’s chances of getting in. BGN writer Tyler Jackson also interviewed another Hall of Fame voter about the same topic earlier this year.

Domowitch pitched a strong case for Dawkins last year but he remains unsure if this will be the year Dawkins gets his due. It’s really a shame Dawkins has already had to wait this long.

Former Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens is also one of the 12 finalists for the second year in a row.

The Class of 2018 will be revealed on the day before Super Bowl LII — Saturday, Feb. 3. There will be four to eight members enshrined in this year’s class.

Here’s a look at all 12 finalists this year.
