Woodson and Harris inducted into Packers Hall of Fame

NOW: Woodson and Harris inducted into Packers Hall of Fame

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Thursday night Sept. 2, was a special night in Titletown.

The organization honored two players who helped make the Packers one of the most successful franchises of the last 30 years. 

Immortalized forever, Charles Woodson and Al Harris become the two latest Packers in the Packers Hall of Fame. For them, they say it's fitting because of the time they spent in Green Bay together.

"For it to happen, to go in with Wood, I'm super stoked," said Harris. "It means the world to me."

"To go in with him, I think it's the only way it could be," Woodson said.

The word ball-hawk comes to mind when you think of Charles Woodson and Al Harris. The two totaled 52 interceptions in their 14 years wearing Packers uniforms.

"I think we both tried to elevate each other's game, every practice, every game," said Woodson. 

"Just from day one when he got here, it all just clicked. We didn't have to force anything, everything was genuine," Harris added.

In what will now serve as a permanent home, they will remain amongst the other Packers greats for generations to come.

"This is like the icing on the cake, you put all the ingredients into it and then afterwards you want to be able to taste the fruits of your labor, right?" said Woodson.

Less than a month ago, Woodson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame for what he did in his entire NFL career, but the hall is never what he thought about playing. He had one goal in mind, day in and day out.

"For me to hold up the Lombardi trophy," Woodson said. "I was good with that."

There are now 164 players in the Packers Hall of Fame. 

Woodson has the distinction of being one of the 27 also in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
