A recent addition to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Educational Outreach Program is the Heart of a Hall of Famer series. This program provides students the opportunity to learn first-hand what it took beyond athletic ability for legendary Hall of Fame players to achieve success on and off the football field with a focus on positive character qualities.
Live interaction with a Hall of Fame player is provided to students through video conferencing. While some programs originate from Canton, Ohio, others originate in the community of the featured Hall of Famer and then broadcast to schools across the country. The series is designed for grades 7th-12th and are free of charge.
The Heart of a Hall of Famer series has featured an impressive lineup of speakers connecting from locations across the country. Some past participants and locations have included:
Floyd Little (Syracuse, NY & Seattle, WA)
Warren Moon (Bellevue, WA)
Emmitt Smith (Dallas, TX)
Thurman Thomas (Buffalo, NY)
Rod Woodson (Alameda, CA)
