In honor of the NFL’s 50th Super Bowl this past season, players from championship teams throughout the Super Bowl era have honored their high schools with commemorative golden footballs.

160229-murphy-ring-creditMurphy was a three-sport star in football, basketball and baseball at Clarence High before going on to an NFL career with the Washington Redskins, for whom he played in back-to-back Super Bowls (XVII and XVIII) following the 1982 and ’83 seasons, winning the first one. Murphy, of course, was also the Packers’ top executive during their most recent championship season in 2010 (XLV).

Back in October, Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy made a similar trip to his hometown of Pittsburgh for a special ceremony.

The program is known as the Super Bowl Honor Roll campaign, designed to recognize the communities that have produced Super Bowl champions over the past half century.
