Former Chiefs linebacker Bobby Bell will be recognized by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance in Shelby, N.C., on Friday as part of “Hometown Hall of Famers,” a national program honoring Hall of Famers with ceremonies in their hometowns.

Bell will be presented with his plaque at Shelby High, where it will be permanently displayed.

Bell, a nine-time Pro Bowler with the Chiefs and standout on the club’s teams that played in Super Bowl I and won Super Bowl IV, was the first Kansas City player inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1983.

Other Chiefs Hall of Famers who have been honored in their hometowns include Len Dawson, Willie Lanier, Willie Roaf and Jan Stenerud, who was honored at his alma mater, Montana State.
