Former offensive tackle Matt Light was voted by the fans of the New England Patriots to be selected into the team's Hall of Fame, the club announced Wednesday.
Light served as protection for quarterback Tom Brady during his 11 seasons (2001-11) with the Patriots, helping the team win nine AFC East titles, five conference crowns and three Super Bowl championships.
The 39-year-old Light was selected by New England in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft out of Purdue. He played in 155 regular-season games and 20 postseason contests.
"For 11 seasons, Matt's many accomplishments, both on and off the field, made him the consummate Patriot," Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said. "His contributions helped the Patriots become champions on the field and in the community. For more than a decade, Matt fearlessly protected Tom Brady's blind side and played an immeasurably important role in delivering three Super Bowl titles and five conference championships.
"As proud as I am of Matt's many contributions to those championship teams, I truly believe that his lasting legacy will be measured by the many positive things he and his wife, Susie, have done to help others in the community. Their investment in the lives of children will pay dividends for generations to come."
A ceremony will be held on the NRG Plaza outside The Hall at Patriot Place on Sept. 29 in honor of Light, who will be the 27th person to be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame.
Light also will be honored with a halftime ceremony during the Patriots' home game against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 30.
