Cobb is Hall Of Fame's Featured Player of the Week

Posted Oct 8, 2012

Attraction returns for fifth season; features exhibit, drawing for autographed ball

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week for Week 5 is wide receiver Randall Cobb. During Sunday’s 30-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Cobb registered a career-high 82 receiving yards on four receptions, including a 31-yard score. He also averaged 31.7 yards on three kick returns to support the team.

The Hall of Fame’s Featured Player of the Week program features an exhibit with memorabilia from each week’s game, including a game ball autographed by the selected player.

Each week, the game football will be placed on display to be viewed by visitors to the Hall and at the end of the week will be awarded randomly to a Hall of Fame visitor who signed up for the drawing.

Also in the exhibit will be the featured player’s jersey and other potential items including a face mask, shoes, gloves and other equipment.

The exhibit opened Sept. 10 and will continue through the season. Hall of Fame admission is required to see the exhibit, and visitors are able to fill out a drawing form for a chance to win the ball. One drawing ticket will be distributed per each paid admission. Drawing winners will be selected at close of business Saturday and be notified on or before the following Monday.

The winners of game balls thus far have been Tom Byers of South Bend, Ind. (Week 1, Randall Cobb), Pam Bue of Black River Falls, Wis. (Week 2, Clay Matthews), Kelly Costello of Silverdale, Wash. (Week 3, Tim Masthay), and Rosemary King of Waukesha, Wis. (Week 4, James Jones).

Packers.com will feature a photo of the display at the beginning of each week.
