Pro Football Hall of Famer Raymond Berry at this year’s Super Bowl in Miami.

Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Raymond Berry was named to the NFL’s 100th Anniversary All-Time Team and was recognized at the Super Bowl in Miami on Feb. 2.

Berry, seen here wearing the red blazer indicating his position on the team of football greats, made sure he wore a special necktie for the honor, one designed for the Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute by his friend Andre´Churchwell, MD, Chief Diversity Officer for VUMC, senior associate dean for Diversity Affairs in Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and interim vice chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer for Vanderbilt University. The tie has a black background with tiny gold V’s and a small red heart within each V.

Berry, best known for his playing days with the Baltimore Colts and for coaching the New England Patriots, met Churchwell and the two became friends several years ago.
