Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy and Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton will be among those introducing the eight-member Class of 2015 during induction ceremonies on Aug. 8.
Tarkenton will present longtime Minnesota Vikings center Mick Tingelhoff, who spent most of his 17-year career snapping the ball to Tarkenton.

Sydney Seau will present for her father, linebacker Junior Seau, who died in 2012.
