Nelson is Hall of Fame's Featured Player of the Week

Posted Nov 21, 2011

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson is the Packers Hall of Fame’s Featured Player of the Week for Week 11. In Sunday afternoon’s 35-26 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Nelson matched his career-high with two touchdown catches. He also recorded his third 100-yard receiving game in the last five contests.

Nelson has nine touchdowns and registered 40 receptions for 756 yards in the 2011 season.

Each week, a game-used 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. 12 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 Cota of Gillett, Wis. (Week 1, Randall Cobb), Mary Joe Benner of Mason City, Iowa (Week 2, Charles Woodson), Jacob Peters of Gambrills, Md. (Week 3, Jermichael Finley), Christine Bagley of Dalton, Wis. (Week 4, Aaron Rodgers), Brian Guhl of Wichita, Kansas (Week 5, James Jones),Robert Gross of Slinger, Wis. (Week 6, Jordy Nelson) Micah Ganske from Beaver Dam, Wis. (Week 7, Mason Crosby), Gail Olson from Watertown, Wis. (Week 9, Charlie Peprah), and Curt Osterheld from Vienna, Va (Week 10, Clay Matthews).

The featured player will be selected after each game and will be announced on Packers.com. Packers.com also will feature a photo of the display at the beginning of each week.
