He threw 3,429 of them in his Hall of Fame career, so if Bob Griese gets a street named after him, it’s only fitting that it’s a Pass.
Griese’s hometown, Evansville, Indiana, on Tuesday will formally rename a street near his high school stadium Bob Griese Pass. A monument in Griese’s honor will also be unveiled.
Guests for Tuesday’s ceremony include former Dolphins teammate Nat Moore and current Purdue coach Darrell Hazell. Griese played collegiately at in-state Purdue before the Dolphins took him fourth overall in the 1967 Draft.
Griese was the quarterback of the 1972 Dolphins, the only NFL team to win a Super Bowl with an undefeated record.
