The presentation is part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s new program, in which Hall of Famers will be presented with a historical “Hometown Plaque” in their hometown. Presented by Allstate Insurance, the program honors the roots of the players’ great careers, and promotes the positive values of the sport. There have been only 267 members inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, from the more than 21,000 athletes who have played for the NFL.
Joe Namath will be one of the first to be honored with a Hometown Plaque. The plaque will be on display at the Larry Bruno Foundation Hall of Achievement for the remainder of the year before being placed in a permanent display.
