Seau earns emotional send-off at Hall of Fame

CANTON, Ohio (AP) Junior Seau's legacy lives on in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The linebacker was inducted into the Hall on Saturday night. Seau's daughter, Sydney, and his sons were on hand when their father's bust was unveiled in Canton, more than three years after Seau took his own life.

The 12-time Pro Bowler and six-time All Pro spent 20 years as one of the league's most intense players with San Diego, Miami and New England. He died in 2012 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the NFL, claiming the league hid dangers of repetitive blows to the head.

Sydney Seau called her father ''a light'' who ''didn't just make a difference, but was a difference.''
