Green to Be Inducted into Packers Hall of Fame

One of the greatest running backs in Nebraska history, Ahman Green will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, the Packers announced on Tuesday. The 44th Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place July 19, 2014, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

An Omaha native, Green was a cornerstone of a powerful Nebraska offense that won two national titles in his three seasons. Green, who was a member of NU's 1995 and 1997 national championship teams, closed his three-year Husker career ranked No. 2 on Nebraska's career rushing list with 3,880 yards on 574 carries.

Green entered the NFL Draft following his junior season and was a third-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, where he spent the 1998 and 1999 seasons before joining the Green Bay Packers in 2000. Green enjoyed success in Green Bay from 2000 through 2006 and again in 2009 en route to becoming the club's all-time leading rusher with 8,322 yards. He also holds franchise records for most yards from scrimmage (11,048), 1,000-yard seasons (six), 100-yard games (33) and rushing attempts (1,851).

The Class of 2014 will also include Packer great Ken Ruettgers, who was a fixture at left tackle for more than a decade in Green Bay.
