Former New Orleans Saints running back Dalton Hilliard will appear at the Saints Hall of Fame Museum on Sunday, Nov. 18 from 1:25 p.m.-2:40 p.m., prior to the New Orleans Saints home game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
A prep star at Patterson High and college star at LSU, Hilliard was drafted in the second round by New Orleans in 1986. He went on to play eight seasons (1986-93) for the Saints and ranks in many categories among the very best in franchise history.
Hilliard is the fourth leading rusher in franchise history (4,164 yards). He is third all-time in touchdowns (56) and seventh all-time in scoring (318 points). Hilliard was an integral part of the first winning season and first playoff team in Saints history in 1987 and was part of four playoff teams with New Orleans.
In 1989, Hilliard led the NFL in touches (396) and in touchdowns (18) when he made the Pro Bowl. Hilliard finished his career with 249 receptions for 2,233 yards and 14 touchdowns. He rushed for 39 touchdowns. He played in four playoff games, scoring a touchdown. Hilliard also completed four touchdown passes with the Saints.
Hilliard, who was inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame in 1998, will be available for autographs and pictures.
The Saints Hall of Fame Museum is located at Gate B on the Plaza level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The museum is open for all Saints home games two hours prior to game time and for 45 minutes following each game. Those holding tickets to each game are admitted free on game day.
The museum is open Monday-Friday by appointment between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at a cost of $10 per adult and $5 for children under 12, seniors (60-and-over), active military members and groups of five or more.
