From All-State honors in football and basketball at Salesianum School, Hall became an All-Big Ten end at Minnesota–where he played in two Rose Bowls –and an eight-year man in the National
Football League. He was drafted in the seventh round by Detroit, spent two hitches with the Minnesota Vikings and one season in New Orleans. In 96 pro games, the flanker caught 103 passes for a 14
yard average and eight touchdowns. In a 1964 Viking upset of Green Bay, he caught six Fran Tarkenton throws for 97 yards and a TD. It was his biggest day since he was a sophomore and set a University
of Minnesota record with nine receptions against Purdue. 



Every inductee into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame since our inaugural year in 1976 is represented on our website. Honoring the athletic excellence of these men and women is an integral part of Delaware sports history.


From our annual Delaware Sports Hall of Fame induction gala in May, celebrations of Black History Month and Women in Sports Month, as well as individual sports highlights, there is something for every sports fan.


A visit to the museum will take you back over 100 years of sports in Delaware, from the Lenni Lenape Indians right up to today. Experience memorabilia, artifacts, and the stories of Delaware legends.
