Former Pleasantville High School and professional football player Dino Hall was inducted into the Gloucester County Sports Hall of Fame on Tuesday.

The 34th annual banquet was held at the Adelphia Restaurant in Woodbury.

Hall played football for Glassboro State College, now Rowan University, from 1976-78.

The running back was a two-time New Jersey State College Athletic Conference All-Conference first team selection and was named the 1978 NJSCAC Athlete of the Year. He was also the 1978 Eastern College Athletic Conference Player of the Year and was an American Football Coaches Association and Associated Press All-American.

During his time there, the Profs went 19-11 and won the NJSCAC Championship in 1976 and 1977. He still holds the school single-game rushing record with 255 yards.

Hall signed with the Cleveland Browns in 1979 and played in the NFL for five years, primarily as a kick returner.

Hall also played baseball for the Profs from 1975-78. Hall was named the team MVP in 1977. He still holds at least a share of six school records, including stole bases in a season (46) and career (97) and stolen base percentage (.924).
