TEMPLE, Texas — Temple-native and Pro Football Hall of Famer "Mean" Joe Greene was honored by Temple ISD Friday night.
The district retired the No. 75 Greene wore during his days playing for the Dunbar High School Panthers.
The ceremony took place at approximately 7:15 p.m. Friday at Wildcat Stadium before the Temple vs. Harker Heights game.
Greene played at Dunbar before going on to North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas) and eventually the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Greene is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the College Football Hall of Fame, the Texas Sports Hall of Fame and the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame.
Greene's will be the first jersey to be retired by the school district. His No. 75 is also one of only two numbers officially retired by the Steelers.
