“He goes out of his way to prepare and five himself the best way he can to have success. Whether it’s taking care of his body, getting extra catches in, extra time in the weight room, extra time in film, he does it all.” - Slater on Julian Edelman
Sterling Sharpe - Drafted #7 Overall by the Green Bay Packers in 1988, was a Hall of Fame bound Wide Receiver. He was the first Packer to tie Don Hutson’s record of 90 single season receptions set in 1945 and would later break Hutson’s single season receptions and receiving yards records. He was a five time All-Pro (89, 90, 92, 93, 94). Unfortunately his career was cut short due to a neck injury. Had he not been injured he would’ve won a Superbowl in ‘96 and possibly multiple other rings as a part of one of the best QB/WR tandems of the 90s (possibly ever) with Brett Favre passing to him.
His younger brother Shannon, who has won three Superbowls was recently inducted into the Pro-Football Hall of Fame.
Shannon Shape had these words to say about him “My big brother Sterling. I’m the only player, of 267 men who have walked through this building to my left (Canton), that can honestly say this "I’m the only Pro-Football player that’s in the Hall of Fame and I’m the second best player in my own family.”
“If fate had dealt you a better hand, there is no question, we would’ve been the first brothers in the Hall of Fame.”
