The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. announced that it will induct former fullback William Henderson, former offensive guard Marco Rivera and contributor Frank Jonet at the 41st Hall of Fame Induction Banquet. Induction will take place July 23rd, 2011 in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
Henderson was a 3rd round pick from North Carolina and played 12 seasons with the Packers. He appeared in 188 games, behind only Brett Favre, Bart Starr and Ray Nitschke on the Packers all-time games-played list. Henderson helped pave the way for seven 1,000 yard rushers.
Rivera was a sixth round draft pick out of Penn State. He played for nine seasons in a Packers uniform, appearing in 125 games with 111 starts, including his final 99 consecutively. Rivera started for seven consecutive seasons at guard (1998-2004).
Jonet, a native of Tonet, Wis., was involved with the team since 1919 as office manager for the Indian Packing Company, Curly Lambeau’s employer that sponsored the team with funds for uniforms and equipment. Jonet would later be named treasurer in 1935 and then elected to the dual position of secretary-treasurer in 1941, a role in which he served until he passed away in 1951.
