The City of Columbia and the National Football League have teamed up to honor NFL Hall of Fame running back Walter Payton and his family. Saturday afternoon, city officials unveiled a Hometown Hall of Famer sign at the city's first-ever, Main Street Tailgate Festival.
Three of the signs honoring Payton will be placed on highways around Columbia.
Payton was a star player at Columbia High School and Jackson State, before going on to a Hall of Fame career with the Chicago Bears.
He died in 1999.
City officials also presented Payton's mother, Alyne, with a key to the city.
"Words just can't explain," said Mrs. Payton. "I'm just so happy for my son and I know he would be to," she said.
"There's no greater honor for an individual or an athlete to be honored in his city with something that says I'm from this town," said Eddie Payton, Walter's brother. Eddie Payton also played five seasons in the NFL.
In addition to Eddie Payton, former NFL veterans Mike Landrum and Jeff Posey also attended the festival.
