He played against the greats of the game. He is one of the greats of the game. Last month, it was all confirmed in Canton. Aeneas Williams was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It surprised no one. When you go to eight Pro Bowls, make the 1990s All-Decade team, and intercept 55 passes and score nine touchdowns, you are worthy.

That night away from the tube would lead Ellie to Dale Huff, her future husband and business partner. "I decided to not watch Melrose Place on a Thursday night because I needed to get my career going, “ Ellie recalls. “(Dale) was the head of a sports nutrition networking group, and I knew I needed to become part of this group. We started meeting, and I found out Dale and I had some of the same goals.”
