Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance Company
to Honor the Late Vince Lombardi as "Hometown Hall of Famer™” at St. Francis Preparatory School


Pro football legend Vince Lombardi will be recognized by the Pro Football Hall of
Fame and Allstate Insurance Company in Queens, New York, on Wednesday,
October 2, 2013, as part of "Hometown Hall of Famers™,” a national program
honoring the hometown roots of the sport’s greatest coaches, players, and
contributors with special ceremonies and plaque dedication events in local
communities.


"’Hometown Hall of Famers™’ has been warmly embraced by communities and
Hall of Famers alike,” said George Veras, Pro Football Hall of Fame Enterprises
president and CEO. "We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Allstate to
bring the Pro Football Hall of Fame to communities across the country and
congratulate the late Vince Lombardi and St. Francis Preparatory School on
bringing a piece of the Pro Football Hall of Fame to Queens.”


A legendary NFL coach and former high school standout at St. Francis Preparatory
School, Lombardi will be honored with his "Hometown Hall of Famer™” plaque
during a special ceremony at 1:25 p.m. ET on Wednesday, October 2, in the
school’s auditorium, located at 6100 Francis Lewis Blvd., Fresh Meadows, NY,
where the plaque will live permanently to serve as an inspiration for the school’s
students and athletes. John Lombardi, Vince’s grandson, will be on-hand to accept
the plaque on behalf of the Lombardi family.
The ceremony will be attended by St. Francis Preparatory School students, faculty,
staff, alumni, and Lombardi’s family members and close friends. Kyle Flood,
Rutgers University head football coach and St. Francis alumnus, will serve as the
Master of Ceremonies.

In addition to the plaque, a commemorative Vince Lombardi "Hometown Hall of
Famers™” road sign will be on display in Queens.
