One of the greatest college football players in Texas history will return to his hometown.
Crane ISD announced Thursday it will host college football Hall-of-Famer Bob McKay at its home opener against Colorado City.
McKay graduated from Crane High School in 1966. He played offensive line at the University of Texas and became an All-American. McKay was a first-round draft pick into the NFL and played for the Cleveland Browns and the New England Patriots.
In January, McKay earned a spot in the College Football Hall of Fame and will be inducted with the 2017 class.
Superintendent Bill Boyd announced in a media release, the school will honor McKay at halftime by retiring his jersey. Also, fans can meet McKay at 6 p.m. during a public Meet and Greet at 6 p.m. at Crane Elementary in the multi-purpose room.
