The Portland Museum opens a new permanent exhibit today featuring the memorabilia of football great — and Portland neighborhood boy — Paul Hornung. A member of every national football hall of fame, Hornung first made headlines at Louisville’s Flaget High School playing for coach Paulie Miller. He won the 1956 Heisman Trophy at Notre Dame and went on to a fabulous career with the great Green Bay Packers teams coached by Vince Lombardi. As a player, Hornung did it all: running, passing, punting and place-kicking. He led the NFL in scoring three straight years, from 1959-61. Lombardi called Hornung “the most versatile man ever to play the game.” Now Hornung remembers the coach in his new book, “Lombardi and Me,” which he will sign for the public at an open house today from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. —Bill Doolittle
