Two weeks ago the Packers Alumni series began with wallpapers of Sterling Sharpe and Ezra Johnson. Now it continues with tributes to Travis Williams and Reggie White.

Reggie White

Defensive End (1993-98)

Nicknamed "The Minister of Defense," Reggie White was one of the greatest defensive linemen in football history.

Selected by the Philadelphia Eagles as their first-round choice (the fourth player chosen overall) in the NFL's 1984 supplemental draft of USFL players, White officially became an Eagle on Sept. 20, 1985, when Philadelphia purchased his rights from the Memphis Showboats.

In Week 4 of the '85 season, White joined the Eagles and went on to be named NFC 'Defensive Rookie of the Year' by the NFL Players Association, first-team NFL all-rookie and honorable mention All-Pro.

After eight years in Philadelphia, White joined the Packers in 1993 to help solidify their defense. He played a vital role in Green Bay's victory in Super Bowl XXXI, collecting a record three of the Packers' five sacks against the New England Patriots' Drew Bledsoe.

The Packers' all-time sack leader with 68.5, White also held the NFL's record with 192.5 career sacks until Bruce Smith surpassed that mark in 2003.

White also played a role in one of the Packers' most prominent modern traditions.

Recovering a fumble vs. the Raiders, Dec. 26, 1993, White returned the ball 10 yards before lateraling it to LeRoy Butler, who covered the remaining 25 yards into the end zone and leaped into the arms of fans in the south bleachers, beginning what would be forever known as the "Lambeau Leap."

Travis Williams

Running Back/Kick Returner (1967-70)

A fourth-round draft pick out of Arizona State, Travis Williams exploded onto the NFL scene with one of the greatest seasons ever by a kick returner.

Nicknamed "Roadrunner," Williams scored on kickoff returns four times his rookie season, including two in the first quarter against the Cleveland Browns, Nov. 12, 1967, while averaging 41.06 yards on 18 returns -- an NFL record.

Also a running back, with 88 yards on 18 carries, Williams led the Packers to a 28-7 victory over the Rams, scoring on touchdown runs of 46 and 2 yards in the 1967 Western Conference Playoff Game.

In 1969, following the retirement of Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor, Williams became the Packers' featured back and led the team with 536 yards on the ground.

Having played just four seasons with the Packers, Williams finished his career with the Rams where he led the NFL with a 29.7 kickoff-return average.
