Will Shields, Chiefs Hall of Famer

Will Shields entered the Chiefs Hall of Fame on Sunday.

When you entered Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, you saw the return of the Ring of Honor. The team took the Ring of Honor down two years ago but decided to bring it back on Sunday.

All the names along the Ring of Honor were covered before the game with a red drape. They were unveiled by owner Clark Hunt, who was in the upper deck for the unveiling.

The last name to be unveiled was Will Shields, the newest member of the Chiefs Hall of Fame. Shields was honored in a halftime presentation, which he said was "awesome".

"You never imagine that you're going to be in the Ring of Honor, Hall of Fame or anything like that," Shields said. "You just go out and play every week. It's really cool to say your name in the same breath as some of the great players like Willie Lanier and Emmitt Thomas that are up there on that ring."

And many of those old school folks were in attendance, including Marty Schottenheimer.

"All of us have so many fond memories of Arrowhead," Marty said. "The opportunity to come back and support theChiefs is something that my family always looks forward to doing."
