READING, Pa. - Pro Football Hall of Famer and former Reading High standout Lenny Moore was honored on Thursday, being named a Hometown Hall of Famer.
The seven-time pro bowler was awarded the honor by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate at a ceremony at Reading High.
Moore attended Penn State and was a first-round pick of the Baltimore Colts in 1956. Combined with Johnny Unitas, the duo lifted the Colts to prosperity in the 1950s.
