It's a special week for legendary center and vaunted member of "The Hogs," Jeff Bostic, who will be honored Sunday at halftime during his induction into the Redskins Ring of Fame.

As part of the Redskins' annual Alumni Homecoming Game, many former Redskins greats are due to attend, some of whom -- documented in the video above -- helped form the foundation of the offensive line during the team's three Super Bowl victories.

Alumni expected to attend the weekend's festivities include Pro Football Hall of Famers Russ Grimm, Ken Houston, Sonny Jurgensen, Bobby Mitchell, Charley Taylor, Redskins Ring of Fame members Larry Brown, Gary Clark, Pat Fischer, Ken Harvey, Billy Kilmer, Brian Mitchell, Mark Moseley, Brig Owens and members of the 80 Greatest Redskins Mike Bragg, Terry Hermeling, Ron McDole, Raleigh McKenzie, Mike Nelms and George Starke, among others.

The gameday celebration also includes an alumni parade with the Redskins Marching Band and Washington Redskins Cheerleaders.

As the short documentary explains, if the Hogs identity had a trinity, it began with Bostic, who was flanked by Joe Jacoby and Grimm.

"As undrafted free agents, Bostic and Jacoby came to the Redskins as paupers. They left as All-Pro Redskins royalty."

Bostic finished his career in 1993 after winning three Super Bowls, earning All-Pro honors in 1983 and starting 149 games throughout his 14 seasons in Washington. 

Watch the entire video to refresh your memory of how gritty, and later glorified, they all were.
