Terrell Owens has decided to celebrate his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame at Chattanooga Sonny Jurgensen Jersey , where he played college football.
The former NFL All-Pro receiver, who has said he was not attending the induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio, released a statement on Tuesday saying he would give his acceptance speech at his alma mater.
"I have decided to give my Hall of Fame speech at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in McKenzie Arena on Saturday, August 4," Owens posted on Twitter. "The event Jared Spurgeon Jersey , which is free and open to the public, starts at 3:17 p.m."
Owens added that he is "proud to be a Moc, and I'm honored to be able to share this experience with my family, friends, teammates and fans at the place that provided me an opportunity beyond high school and where I truly began to find myself as an athlete."
The 44-year-old Owens said he is looking forward to the event, and "Getcha popcorn ready."
Owens was a three-sport athlete at Chattanooga Milan Lucic Jersey Kids , where he played football from 1992-95. He also played basketball and ran track for the Mocs. Owens said he "realized just how much I want to celebrate what will inevitably be the best weekend of my life at a place that means so much to me."
