Bucs honor Selmon, Sept. 11 victims during ceremony
TAMPA - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks with a pregame ceremony at Raymond James Stadium. Tight end Kellen Winslow, the final Tampa Bay player introduced, ran onto the field hoisting a large American flag. After a taped message from actor Robert De Niro appeared on the BucVision screens, "Taps'' was played to honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 tragedy. Everyone in the stadium remained standing as an American flag was unfurled that stretched the entire length of the football field before the singing of the National Anthem. A moment of silence also was held to honor the memory of Buccaneers Hall of Fame defensive end Lee Roy Selmon, who died a week ago, two days after suffering a stroke.
