AFA Hosts Successful 32nd Annual Semi-Pro Hall of Fame Inductions

Canton, OH (June 29, 2012) - The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio was the site for the American Football Association's 32nd Annual Semi-Pro Hall of Fame Induction Dinner on Friday June 29th. Eighteen individuals representing semi-pro football teams across the country were enshrined as 'legends' of their level.


This year's semi-pro football enshrinement festivities began on Thursday evening with the annual AFA/HOF Alumni Huddle cocktail party. The "Huddle" provided attending HOF Alumni an opportunity to meet the new group of semi-pro football legends before they were inducted. Don Jonas (Class of 1983) and Steve Moser (Class of 1992) provided inspirational accounts of their semipro football careers at the Huddle Cocktail Party Thursday evening.
