PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy was announced as the keynote speaker at Saint Joseph High School's Hall of Fame gala in May.

Levy is most known for leading the Buffalo Bills to four consecutive Super Bowls - losing all of them - in the early 1990s. With star-packed teams featuring Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed and Bruce Smith, Levy is the most successful coach in team history with a 112-70 record. Under his reigns the Bills made the playoffs right out of nine years with six division championships.

Levy was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame first ballot in 2001 and he has since moved on to be a motivational speaker.

He will be the keynote speaking for Saint Joseph's gala "An Evening with the Stars" that will induct the school's best football athletes of all-time into its Hall of Fame. The gala will be held May 20 at the Crowne Plaza on West Street. The proceeds will benefit the Catholic Schools of Pittsfield.

The Hall of Fame induction will celebrate the grand tradition of Crusader’s football by honoring a legends team comprised of the stars from the 1940s, 50s and 60s and all-decade teams from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. St. Joseph’s has a storied history that has included several championship teams and a number of standouts who would go on to play at the college level. Ballots are being distributed to St. Joe’s alumni to vote on the legends and all-decade teams.

 "We are thrilled to host this gala that will bring all the generations of St. Joe’s football together to share in this special tradition," said Bill Jones, board chairman of the Catholic Schools of Pittsfield, in a press release. "Also, we are all looking forward to welcoming Marv Levy to the community to hear his own motivational stories."
