NFL Hall of Fame, 1963-2022.

The NFL Hall of Fame induction ceremonies (August 6th) mark the unofficial beginning of the 2022 football season.  Since it’s charter class was enshrined in 1963 there have been 361 members. This per capita map, based on where the Hall of Famers went to high school, indicates two regions of dominance (twice the national average).  These areas are Pen-WeV-Oh (Pennsylvania, West Virginia & Ohio) or the early ‘core’ of pro football and the Southern states led by Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana.
