DENVER (AP) - Former Broncos quarterback John Elway has chosen his oldest daughter to introduce him at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony Aug. 8.
 

Elway had hoped to have each of his four children daughters Jessie, Jordan and Juliana and son Jack do the honors. However, the Hall of Fame informed Elway its policy requires only one person deliver the presenter's speech.

Elway narrowed his field of candidates to his mother, Jan, and Jessie, 18. His mother preferred not to stand in the spotlight, leaving his daughter to give the speech at the hall in Canton, Ohio.

"Everyone else is relieved she's doing it," Elway said Thursday.

Jessie Elway plans to attend Stanford, her father's alma mater, on a basketball scholarship after starring at forward at Cherry Creek High School.

I like this. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be the child of a pro athlete. The sacrifices a family makes in order for them to do what they love. Can't wait for the Hall of Fame game to see what she has to say.

Yeah I like that idea. She would have made alot of sacrifices, so she'd be able to say what this really means to her and everybody else best
