But the league is currently inviting cities to put up bids to see who is interested in hosting the event.

This week, the NFL invited Chicago, Los Angeles and New York to make their presentations to host, but no one emerged as the front-runner.

It has been reported that more than a dozen cities have shown interest in being a host in 2015. They include: Boston, Canton, Cleveland, Green Bay, Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The NFL says it’ll chose a site sometime this summer.

Kazmaier graduated from Maumee High School near Toledo, Ohio, in 1948. He played football (four years), basketball (four years), track & field (four years), baseball (four years) and golf (one year) earning a letter each year in each sport. He was recruited by 23 colleges, most offering full scholarships.

He served as chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness under President Ronald Reagan and President George H.W. Bush and was president of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame.
