BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Steve Tasker’s name is once again mentioned with other pro football legends as semifinalists were announced Tuesday to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Buffalo Bills great made a name for himself with outstanding special teams play, and if he is ever enshrined, will be a one-of-a-kind entry in Canton’s hallowed halls.

Only Steve Atwater (9) and John Lynch (8) have been semifinalists more than Tasker, with 7.

The next round of cutdowns is in January.
