Michael Strahan remembers first NFL coach Dan Reeves 


Giants Ring of Honor Inductee and Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan shares his memories of coach Dan Reeves:

Dan Reeves was a remarkable man and coach. I will never forget his southern drawl the first time he called my name when he drafted me in 1993. I knew how great of a coach he was from his years with the Denver Broncos, and I remember how excited I was because I also knew he'd help guide my career.

His decision to move me from the right side of the defensive line to the left side was a defining moment. It allowed me to become the player he knew I could be.

He always believed in me. I couldn't be more thankful for Dan and all the encouragement he gave me throughout my career. He was a man of integrity, class and incredible character.

I'll miss him, but take solace in knowing his legacy lives on within the NFL and all of the fans.
