Former Seattle Seahawks star and Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy will be honored during Miami's game against Virginia Tech on Saturday, according to an announcement from

Kennedy -- who was enshrined into the Hall of Fame on Aug. 4 -- is the fifth Miami Hurricane to garner such an honor, joining Jim Otto, Ted Hendricks, Jim Kelly and Michael Irvin.

In 11 seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, Kennedy notched 58 sacks and one fumble recovery for a touchdown. The defensive end played 116 consecutive games, was selected to eight Pro Bowls, and only missed nine games in a Seahawks uniform during his career.

In his senior season with the Hurricanes, Kennedy started in all 12 games and made a name for himself as a defensive force on a team that went 11-1 and won the 1989 National Championship. He also gathered second-team AP All-American honors during that 1989 campaign.
