CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Former Southern University defensive back Aeneas Williams has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Williams was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, who split 14 NFL seasons between the Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams. He retired after the 2004 season and was selected for induction in his fifth year of eligibility.

Williams, who is now a pastor in St. Louis, was known for his leadership abilities and ball-hawking skills. He had 61 career interceptions including playoffs, and returned nine for touchdowns.

He was introduced for induction by his father, Lawrence Williams.

The seven-member Hall of Fame class is rounded out by defensive end Michael Strahan, receiver Andre Reed, offensive tackle Walter Jones, linebacker Derrick Brooks, punter Ray Guy and defensive end Claude Humphrey.
