Honoring the best with the best
Andy Lopusnak,
I’m not a huge fan of hockey, but I love the fact that the NHL honors some of its legends on the names of the trophies handed out to the league’s annual award winners, like the Hart Memorial Trophy given out the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. What better why to honor the pioneers and all-time greats of Arena Football than to do the same?

Played six seasons with the Tampa Bay Storm, leading the team to a 68-13 overall record as the team`s starting quarterback and four ArenaBowl championships. He was named League MVP in 1992 and MVP of ArenaBowl VII. Gruden was inducted into the Arena Football Hall of Fame in 1998.
