Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE

Former Florida State All-American Fred Biletnikoff will be honored in his hometown on Tuesday. The ceremony will take place at his old high school in Erie, Pa.

Pro Football Hall of Famer and former Florida State Seminoles wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff will be honored in his home town of Erie, Pa., on Tuesday afternoon. This honor is part of "Hometown Hall of Famers" program, sponsored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance.

A plaque will be displayed in his honor at Central Career and Technical High School to help to inspire current and future students. In an interview with Tallahasee.com's Ira Schoffel, Biletnikoff said the honor will be a lot of fun:

"They're going to have it at the high school I started at. I still have family and a ton of the guys I played with there. It's terrific to be able to come back and visit and get the opportunity to see everybody."

Biletnikoff earned All-American honors with the Seminoles in 1964 and was drafted by the Oakland Raiders with the No. 2 pick in 1965. During his NFL career, Biletnikoff was named to the Pro Bowl six times and was named MVP of Super Bowl XI.
