Lambeau Leap

Did you know it has been twenty years since a new tradition in Green Bay Packers history was born? On December 26, 1993 on a frigid day the 8-6 Packers were looking to clinch a playoff berth for the first time in many years. While holding a 14-0 lead, LeRoy Butler forced a fumble that was picked up by Reggie White. After running for 10 yards with the ball, White lateraled to Butler, who went 25 yards for the touchdown. When he reached the end zone, Butler spontaneously jumped into the crowd in celebration. We have LeRoy Butler’s autobiography as well as his new book “Packers Pride”.
