A wide receiver, Don Beebe played in 26 games for the Packers during the 1996-97 seasons. An immediate contributor, he caught 39 passes for 699 yards and four touchdowns in 1996 as he helped the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XXXI. He had two 100-yard receiving games in 1996, including an 11-catch, 220-yard performance on a Monday Night overtime win against San Francisco. His 220 receiving yards is the third-highest, single-game total in club history. He also had a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown at Chicago in 1996.
Craig Hentrich began his Packers career in 1994 and spent four seasons with the team as a punter. Hentrich was a member of the Packers’ formidable special teams that helped lead the club to a Super Bowl XXXI victory. Throughout his time in Green Bay, Hentrich had a 42.8 yard gross average over 289 punts, which is the second highest mark in team history. He also had 200 consecutive punts without a block between 1995 and 1997.
Both former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
