Beaver Falls Hometown Hall of Famer
Namath played 13 seasons in the American Football League and the National Football League for the New York Jets and the Los Angeles Rams as an All-Pro quarterback. Widely considered to be one of the best quarterbacks to play the game. "Broadway Joe," as he was nicknamed, was a five-time All Star in the American Football League and 1972 All-Pro selection in the National Football League. During his professional career he led the Jets to an American Football League Championship in 1968 and a victory in Super Bowl III the following year.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate are proud to recognize Beaver Falls as the official "Hometown" for Joe Namath and keep the legacy of one of football's greats in "Good Hands" by dedicating this plaque on September 10, 2011.
