Montgomery Sam’s Club Hosts Chicago Bears’ Legend Dan Hampton
NFL Hall of Famer to sign free autographs on Friday, July 11
Hampton, also known as "Danimal," was an integral part of the Bears’ Super Bowl XX championship team. His 12-year career with the Bears culminated with his selection to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002. A versatile defensive lineman, Hampton made All-Pro at both defensive end and defensive tackle. In 1990, he was the recipient of the George S. Halas Courage Award by the Pro Football Writers Association. Hampton was voted to the All-Century team of the University of Arkansas Football team and named one of the state of Arkansas' Top 50 greatest athletes in the 20th century.
“We encourage fans to join us for a fun and exciting day,” said Marlee Carlson Bryant, Club manager of the Montgomery location. “This event is our way of thanking the community for their patronage of our numerous clubs in the area. We are excited and look forward to seeing all the smiling faces of Montgomery and surrounding communities, as we welcome Bears’ legend Dan Hampton to our new location.”
