Texas Southern University alum Michael Strahan will have his No. 92 jersey retired this November to commemorate his 15-year career with the New York Giants.

The Pro Football Hall of Famer played for the Giants from 1993-2007 as defensive end, and currently holds the franchise record of 141.1 sacks. He retired from football in June 2008, according to a news release from the New York Giants.

During his football career, Strahan was captain during the Giants’ 2007 Super Bowl XLII team, four-time first-team All-Pro, 7-time Pro Bowler, and 2001′s AL Defensive Player of the Year, according to the team.

Strahan will be the second Giants player to have his jersey number retired this year. Eli Manning, who retired last year, will also have his No. 10 jersey retired during the Giants-Falcons game later this season.

The jersey retirement ceremony will take place Nov. 28 when the Giants host the Philadelphia Eagles.
