The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame’s Featured Player of the Week program returns for its fourth season in 2010 and again features an exhibit with memorabilia from each week’s game, including a game ball autographed by the selected player.
The Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week for Week 1 is linebacker Clay Matthews. The second-year player led the defense with seven tackles, including three sacks, plus two quarterback hits and a forced fumble, and made the biggest stop of the game to preserve the Packers’ 27-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
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 potentially other items such as a face mask, shoes, gloves and other equipment.
The exhibit opened this week and 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 be indicated in game coverage on the team’s Web site, Packers.com. Packers.com also will feature a photo of the display at the beginning of each week.
