The reaction from Steelers Nation after Alan Faneca and Bill Nunn were elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame was pure joy and excitement.
The fans shared their thoughts and congratulations, but they weren't the only ones.
Faneca's former teammates, those who worked with Nunn and knew him, and those who are part of the Steelers' family shared their excitement and emotions on social media, with a sampling of their thoughts below.
I am so thrilled that my friend and mentor Bill Nunn was finally voted into the @ProFootballHOF as a contributor. He had such an impact on me as my career was developing with the Steelers in the 70s & 80s. We would not have enjoyed the level of success they’ve had without him. pic.twitter.com/wjIgjymP15— Tony Dungy (@TonyDungy) February 7, 2021
Mr. Nunn grew up in #Pittsburgh’s Homewood neighborhood.— City of Pittsburgh (@Pittsburgh) February 7, 2021
After a career with the iconic @NewPghCourier, he began his career with the @steelers in 1967. Mr. Nunn passed in 2014 & will be enshrined in the @ProFootballHOF this August. https://t.co/iR49agGRMQ
Here we go...It will be a TREMENDOUS honor to enter @ProFootballHOF with 2 more 2021 honorees, @afan66 and Bill Nunn. It reflects the culture and tradition that represents what it means to be when you're a part of the @steelers Organization. See you in Canton Steeler Nation.🖤💛— Bill Cowher (@CowherCBS) February 7, 2021
