Three Bills legends honor hometown

Posted by Hannah Buehler on October 8, 2012 – 12:04 pm

Three Bills legends will travel back to their hometowns this fall to personally present the “Hometown Hall of Famers” honor.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s national “Hometown Hall of Famers” was created in the fall of 2011 and honors the hometowns in which Hall of Famers grew up and got their start. The Hall of Famer will go back to his hometown to present a plaque to his community in front of family and friends.

Joe DeLamielleure visited his hometown September 27th in Center Line, Michigan; Bruce Smith is set to visit Norfolk, Virginia Wednesday, October 10th; and Marv Levy in Chicago later this fall.

The “Hometown Hall of Famers” program allows Hall of Famers to deliver the message of preservation, education and honor of the sport of football.
