Tyrone Hughes to appear at Saints Hall of Fame Museum prior to Panthers finale

Former New Orleans Saints defensive back and kick return specialist Tyrone Hughes will appear at the Saints Hall of Fame Museum on Sunday, January 1 prior to the New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers game.

Hughes will be available for autographs and pictures from 10:00 a.m.-11:15 a.m. in the museum, located at Gate B on the Plaza Level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

A native New Orleanian who prepped at St. Augustine and played at Nebraska, Hughes was drafted by his hometown New Orleans Saints in the fifth round of the 1993 draft.

He played for the Saints from 1993-1996 before playing for the Chicago Bears in 1997 and the Dallas Cowboys in 1998.

Hughes earned Pro Bowl honors in 1993 as a member of the Saints. He holds the NFL record for most kickoff return yards in a single game (304) and the NFL record for the most combined kickoff/punt return yards in a game (347). Hughes returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in that same game against the Los Angeles Rams on October 23, 1994 which tied an NFL record. Hughes currently co-hosts a sports talk show on WIST, 690 AM on Monday nights.

Anyone with a ticket to the game will be admitted free of charge to the museum on game day. The Saints Hall of Fame Museum is open three hours prior to game time and for 45 minutes following each home game.

Admission to the Saints Hall of Fame Museum is available by appointment only for $7 per person Monday through Friday and $5 per person for any group of 10 or more. The Saints Hall of Fame Museum is presented by Southern Eagle and Budweiser.

For more information, call (504) 309-1004 Ext. 209.
