Packers Hall of Fame to honor Lacy as 'Rookie of the Year'

Posted May 13, 2014

Star running back will be recognized as Green, Ruettgers get inducted

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. today announced that Eddie Lacy will be honored with the Hall’s ‘Rookie of the Year’ award, presented by Ariens, at the 44th Packers Hall of Fame Induction Banquet, to be held the evening of July 19, 2014, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Former players Ahman Green and Ken Ruettgers will become the newest members of the Hall that evening.

Lacy, a second-round (No. 61 overall) 2013 NFL draft pick out of Alabama, burst onto the scene last season, leading all NFL rookies in rushing yards and was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by The Associated Press, joining RB John Brockington (1971) as the only Packers to win the award since its inception in 1957. He started all 16 games as a rookie and set franchise rookie records for rushing yards (1,178), rushing TDs (11) and rushing attempts (284) and tied the ream rookie mark for 100-yard rushing games (four). Lacy ranked No. 3 in the NFL with his 11 rushing TDs, behind only Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles and Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (12 each). His 11 TDs on the season were the second-most overall TDs posted by a Green Bay rookie behind only Billy Howton (13 in 1952). He was selected to the Pro Bowl as an injury replacement for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, the first Green Bay rookie RB to be named to the all-star game since Brockington in ’71.

Tickets for the banquet, which begins with a cash bar at 4:30 p.m., with dinner and program to follow at 7 p.m., are $150 each. Tables of 10 also are available for $1,400 and are assigned in the order in which they are purchased. Early reservations are recommended. To purchase tickets, call Holly Borga at (920) 965-6986, or email her at hollyb@packershalloffame.com. No refunds are available 30 days prior to the event.

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is a nonprofit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers that guides the Hall as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin. The Hall raises funds through its annual induction banquet, Golf Classic and other events to preserve the history of the Green Bay Packers and expand its archives. Historic memorabilia donated by individuals to the Hall may qualify as tax-deductible gifts.

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. Golf Classic is set for Monday, July 14, 2014, at The Bull in Sheboygan Falls, Wis.To reserve your foursome, contact Holly Borga at 920-965-6986 or email her at hollyb@packershalloffame.com.

Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Hall moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field. In 2003, it relocated to the Lambeau Field Atrium. It is currently closed for the ongoing Atrium renovation project and will reopen in 2015. While the Packers Hall of Fame is closed, the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay hosts a temporary exhibit, “Touchdown!” with selected and additional never-seen-before items from the Hall’s archives.

Fans may still experience Packers history through stadium tours and other youth programs. Additionally, groups interested in booking tours and those seeking additional information are asked to call 920-569-7512 or visit the Hall online at www.packers.com/hof.
