This has been a big two weeks for the Falcons as far as hall-of-fame inductions go. Last week, quarterback Chris Redman was inducted into the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame, alongside former players Mo Moorman, Dan Neal, Bubba Paris and Rob Bironas.

Redman was drafted in the third round by the Baltimore Ravens, where he won a Super Bowl in 2001. Redman enjoyed stints in New England and Tennessee before coming to Atlanta in 2007.

On Friday, former Falcons running back and current limited partner Warrick Dunn and current Falcons wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie will be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame.

Dunn, who starred at Baton Rouge-Catholic High School, played quarterback, cornerback and running back during his prep years and went on to dominate at Florida State as a tailback, finishing his college career with 3,959 yards, 1,314 receiving yards and 49 total touchdowns. He earned a national championship with the Seminoles in 1993 before becoming a three-time Pro Bowl selection during his 12 seasons in the NFL with the Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Robiskie was an accomplished athlete at Second Ward High School in Edgard, La., and was an All-America quarterback before becoming a running back at LSU from 1973-76. In his last three years at Second Ward, Robiskie contributed an amazing 6,470 yards of total offense and chipped in 62 rushing touchdowns and 28 passing scores.

At LSU, Robiskie finished his career as the school’s all-time leading rusher with 2,517 yards and became the first running back in school history to eclipse 1,000 yards in a season with his 1,117 yards in 1976.

Robiskie played five seasons with Oakland and Miami before going on to coach with the Raiders, Redskins, Browns and Falcons.
