MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. - As a former Philadelphia Eagle prepares to retire his number, that number is being celebrated with a new clothing line.
Former Eagle and Denver Bronco Brian Dawkins partnered with Pottstown-based Schuylkill Valley Sports for the deal.
The line is called "Number 20 Forever." It commemorates Dawkins' number, which will be retired in Philadelphia on Sunday.
"Just the fact that my number's being retired, I still can't believe that," Dawkins said Friday. "This is not something that happens every day. To know that the biggest sport in the U.S. and one of the biggest markets in the National Football League, that my number is now going to be retired there? Come on."
The clothes are available at Schuylkill Valley Sports stores, including those at the Coventry Mall near Pottstown and the Fairgrounds Square Mall in Muhlenberg Twp., Berks Co.
