Green Bay – George Oudhuis failed his first three times, but was successful on his fourth.
On his fourth time on the ballot for the Green Bay Packer Fan Hall of Fame, the Packer fan from Rolling Prairie was named the 23rd inductee into the Packers Fan Hall of Fame.
As reported by Wes Hodkiewicz from packers.com, Oudhuis, who lives in Rolling Prairie, IN, was in the running with 9 other finalists for the yearly award.
Unlike previous years when inductees were recognized at a ceremony inside Lambeau Field, Ouhuis received the news over a Zoom call from Packers’ President and CEO Mark Murphy.
Being inducted into the Hall of Fame comes with some nice perks:
- 4 sets to a 2021 Packers home game
- $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate
- road trip for two to a 2021 Packers away game, including game tickets, air fare and hotel accommodations;
- one-year subscription to Packer Plus.
Most importantly, his name will be permanently displayed inside the Packers Hall of Fame.
This year’s other finalists included Jane Rietmann from Merrimac, Wis., Fred Ihlenfeldt Sr. from Kewaunee, Wis., Jeff Padon from Severn, Md., Ken Trinkner from De Pere, Wis., Leo DeGroot from West Bend, Wis., Patrick (Pat) Suplicki from Stevens Point, Wis., Bob Parker from Green Bay, Gene C. Lasch from Shawano, Wis., and Jeanne Beardsley from Ellsworth, Wis.
