So-Fi Stadium has been rocking all season as the Los Angeles Rams have an 8-2 record. The team took time recognize Issac Bruce who this past August was enshrined into the Pro football Hall of Fame. 

American Airlines Plaza was where Bruce was joined by former teammates and RAM greats Tom Mack, Orlando Pace, Jackie Slater, Eric Dickerson and Former HOF Commissioner David Baker. 

There are 354 members of the hall and Bruce became the 32nd Ram to become a member. Baker was there to present him with is ring. 

“The game we all love stands on the shoulders of the great ones,” said Baker. Those who wear the yellow jacket are truly the ‘Great ones.’ 

Bruce, who led the NFL in receiving yards in 1996, helped the Rams reach two Super Bowls — winning one with him scoring the decisive touchdown.  

From 1999-2001, the Rams set a team record for points (540, 2000) and accumulated 1,569 points. The team of talented players also led the league all three seasons in total offense, passing yards and passing touchdowns.  

“I feel like I’ve had a front row seat his entire career,” said Orlando Pace. 

 Bruce’s biggest grab came in the title game when he caught a 73-yard touchdown in Super Bowl XXXIV to down the Tennessee Titans 23-16.  

He retired as the Rams’ all-time leader in catches (942), receiving yards (14,109) and yards from scrimmage (14,259). Bruce was an All-Pro in 1999 and four-time Pro Bowl selection. 

The 48-year old Bruce is one of fifteen children.  And had a real strong up bringing. 

“You learn hard work and faith,” Bruce stated. “Those were instilled in us at a young age by my parents, and to just be encouraging. We had each other’s backs when we needed it. To this date, we are very supportive of each other.”
