Hall of Fame former football player Paul Hornung, who is portrayed in Broadway's Lombardi by Bill Dawes, took in the production the afternoon of Dec. 12 and took a moment to meet the cast backstage following the show.

Hornung was a member of the Green Bay Packers from 1957-66. He took home the 1956 Heisman trophy prior to debuting with the Packers, with whom he would go on to win four league championships. Over the course of his career, he would be selected to the Pro Bowl two times and was named the NFL MVP of 1961.
