The third Hall of Honor class will be unveiled by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, July 27, and the event will coincide with the team’s third annual charity walk at Saint Vincent College.

The Steelers inducted 27 members into the inaugural class in 2017. Last year, the inductees were Rocky Bleier, Alan Faneca, Bill Nunn, Art Rooney Jr. and Buddy Dial.

The Hall of Honor was established to recognize former players, coaches and front office personnel who were instrumental in the success of the franchise. To be eligible, a player must be retired at least three years and played a minimum of three seasons for the Steelers.

Potential candidates for the third class include former players Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, Dwight White and Jon Kolb, former coach Bill Cowher, former assistant Dick LeBeau and late broadcaster Myron Cope.

Each inductee receives a replica of a solid steel football.

The charity walk will be held on the Saint Vincent campus. The honorary co-chair for the walk will be Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback Mel Blount.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
