Sunday, he was honored once again, this time as a member of the 2013 Michigan Hall of Fame class.

Hanson became the first NFL player to play 300 games with one franchise, finishing with 327.

He made a record 52 field goals from at least 50 yards and is third on the NFL career scoring list at 2,150 points and third in field goals with 495. Hanson is the only player with 2,000 points for one franchise.

He headlines a 2013 class that also includes former Detroit Lions receiver Dorne Dibble and current Lions color analyst Jim Brandstatter.

Dibble tied Doak Walker’s record for the most touchdown receptions by a rookie with six in 1951. He helped the Lions win NFL Championships in 1953 and 1957.

In his career, Dibble had 146 receptions for 2,552 yards (17.5 average) and 19 touchdowns.

Brandstatter has been the color analyst for the Detroit Lions since 1987. A former All Big Ten offensive tackle at the University of Michigan, Brandstatter is also the color analyst for the Wolverine's radio broadcast on Saturday.
