On August 3, 2013 Warren Sapp became only the second Buccaneer to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. 

Sapp, a Plymouth, FL native was a stand out football player at Apopka High before an illustrious career at the University of Miami where Sapp was named First-Team All American and won both the Lombardi Award and Nagurski Trophy in 1994.

In 1995, Sapp was drafted by the Buccaneers with the 12th overall pic of the 1995 Draft and went on to play nine seasons in Tampa Bay. Over the course of his tenure as a Buc, Sapp was a seven-time Pro Browler, named the NFL's Defensive Player Of The Year in 1999, and is the Buccaneers' all-time career sack leader.

Although Sapp moved on to the Raiders in 2004 and played his final four seasons in Oakland, Sapp will always be remembered as a Buccaneer first.

As an instrumental part in the Bucs' resurgance as a franchise, anchoring the inception of the Tampa 2 Defense, and changing the way people view the defensive tackle position - the honor bestowed upon Sapp is greatly deserved.
