Congratulations to “Big Vince” Wilfork… voted into the Patriots Hall of Fame his first year of eligibility!

I always loved watching “Big Vince” and his infectious energy when he played for the Patriots!

According to the New England Patriots, Vince Wilfork will be the 32nd inductee into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

 

Robert Kraft had this to say about Vince Wilfork’s upcoming induction:

“It’s my pleasure to announce Vince Wilfork as our 2022 Patriots Hall of Fame selection.  For more than a decade, Vince was a dominant defender in the trenches and anchored some of the best defenses in franchise history. His contributions on the field propelled the Patriots to four Super Bowl appearances during his 11-year career. He was a big man with an even bigger personality and a huge heart. He quickly became a fan favorite in New England. I look forward to presenting him his Patriots Hall of Fame jacket.”

There’s no official date for the 2022 Patriots Hall of Fame ceremony yet, but you know it’s gonna be awesome with “Big Vince” in the building!
