The 2001 Green Bay Packers' offensive and defensive rookies of the year will be honored at the 32nd annual Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame Induction Banquet Saturday, July 13, 2002 at the KI Convention Center, downtown Green Bay.
The offensive rookie of the year is tight end David Martin who was a sixth-round pick out of Tennessee. Martin was clearly one of the brightest surprises in last year's training camp after moving from his collegiate position of wide receiver. Martin finished the season with 13 receptions for 144 yards and 1 touchdown. He also had 4 tackles on special teams.
The defensive rookie of the year is Bhawoh Jue, a third-round draft pick from Penn State. Jue saw action in 15 games and started the last 7 at strong safety after LeRoy Butler was injured and lost for the season. Jue finished with 39 tackles, 2 interceptions and 1 forced fumble.
Former Packers wide receiver Sterling Sharpe and team photographer Vernon Biever will be inducted into the Packer Hall of Fame at this year's banquet, Saturday, July 13 at the KI Convention Center. Cocktails are at 5:30 p.m., dinner and program will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $95 each. Tables of 10 are available and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Early reservations are recommended. To purchase tickets, call Gwen Borga at 920-405-1177, or email her at Gwen.Borga@pmiwi.com.
