Pall bearers support each other following funeral services for two-time Super Bowl champion Ernie Holmes at Jasper High School in Jasper on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2008.
Holmes was one of the NFL's greatest defensive linemen on the Pittsburgh's famed Steel Curtain. Many funeral attendees shaved their hair into the arrow Holmes wore when he played. While down in his stance, the arrow pointed at the opposing team's quarterback.
Pall bearers place the casket of two-time Super Bowl champion Ernie Holmes into a hearse following funeral services at Jasper High School. Holmes died in a single-car accident near Lumberton.
