Chris Doleman, a graduate of William Penn High School in York, knew how to get to the quarterback, no matter where he lined up or which team wanted him.
The defensive end turned his 150-sack career into a place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was the third of six players inducted Saturday night, joining Dermontti Dawson, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin, Willie Roaf and Jack Butler.
Doleman was drafted as a linebacker by the Vikings, but soon was switched to end. He was fourth on the all-time sack list with 150 1/2 when he retired after a 15-year career with the Vikings, Falcons and 49ers.
He missed only two games and reached the Pro Bowl eight times, including at least once with each of his three teams. He was presented on Saturday by his son Evan.
