Jennings Is Hall Of Fame's Featured Player Of The Week

Attraction, Now in Fourth Season, Features Exhibit, Drawing For Autographed Ball


With a seven-catch performance for 152 yards and a career-high three touchdowns in the Green Bay Packers' 31-3 victory over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday afternoon, wide receiver Greg Jennings earned selection as the Packers Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week, his second recognition this season. The exhibit contains memorabilia from the game, including a game ball autographed by Jennings.

The successful chemistry between a quarterback and his receiver was never more evident than that between Aaron Rodgers and Jennings, when after a lackluster first quarter, Jennings ignited the Packers' offense in the second, making a juggling 47-yard catch-and-run to set up a 42-yard field goal by Mason Crosby. Jennings brought the Packers to a 10-3 lead after quarterback Aaron Rodgers scrambled out of a near-sack to find Jennings for an 11-yard catch for his first touchdown of the day.

Rodgers found Jennings again on the first possession of the third quarter, setting up a play-fake to fire the ball for a 46-yard touchdown by Jennings. Late in the fourth, Jennings recorded his third touchdown on a third-and-one from the Vikings' 22.

Each week, new items from the previous weekend's game will be placed in the display to be viewed by visitors to the Hall. Included among the items will be the autographed game ball, which at the end of the week will be awarded randomly to a Hall of fame visitor who signed up for the free drawing.

Also in the exhibit will be the featured player's jersey, as well as other potential items such as a face mask, shoes, gloves and other equipment.

The winners of game balls thus far have been Kimberly Ruffolo, Lake In The Hills, Ill. (Week 1, Clay Matthews); Stan Martin, Avondale, Ariz. (Week 2, Jermichael Finley); Amy Johnson, St. Peters, Mo. (Week 3, Aaron Rodgers); Emma Jeffers, Manitowoc, Wis. (Week 4, Charles Woodson); Randy Kraft, Devils Lake, N.D. (Week 5, Brandon Jackson); David Morris, Clifton Forge, Va. (Week 6, Greg Jennings);  Brian Schaible, Roanoke, Texas (Week 7, Desmond Bishop); Rebecca Tester, Indian Head, Md. (Week 8, Tramon Williams); and Dan Wade, Baraboo, Wis. (Week 9, James Jones).

The exhibit will continue through the season. Hall of Fame admission is required to see the exhibit, and visitors are able to fill out a raffle form for a chance to win the ball. One raffle ticket will be distributed per each paid admission. Raffle winners will be selected at close of business Saturday and be notified on or before the following Monday.
The featured player will be selected after each game and will feature a photo of the display at the beginning of each week.
