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

Posted Sep 17, 2012

Now in fifth season, attraction features exhibit, drawing for autographed ball

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week for Week 2 is Linebacker Clay Matthews. During Thursday’s 23-10 win over the Chicago Bears, Jay Cutler was sacked a total of seven times - 3.5 of those coming from Matthews, a career high for the linebacker.

So far this season, Matthews has racked up six sacks, matching his career high for the most sacks over a two-game span (Weeks 1-2, 2010).

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, as well as potentially other items such as 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 winner of last week’s game ball was Tom Byers of South Bend, Ind. (Week 1, Randall Cobb).

The featured player will be selected after each game and will be indicated on the team’s Web site, Packers.com. Packers.com also will feature a photo of the display at the beginning of each week.
