Former Clemson defensive back Brian Dawkins was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame Saturday night.

The famous Philadelphia Eagles safety gave an inspiring half-hour speech where he touched on overcoming depression and how he became a hall-of-fame player out of Jacksonville, Florida and then on to Clemson, where he represents the school's first NFL Hall of Fame inductee.

"When I put this jacket on, Jacksonville became another Hall of Famer. The north side, Duval County, became another Hall of Famer... My Pop Warner team, Forest View, they have a Hall of Famer. My high school, Raines High School, has a Hall of Famer," Dawkins said during his induction speech. "Clemson, you have a Hall of Famer, and you are a Hall of Famer."

Here's the full speech:
