JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Longtime Green Bay Packers safety LeRoy Butler, a star at both Lee High School and Florida State, was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Thursday night.
Butler was joined by former Jaguars offensive tackle Tony Boselli in making it the most successful induction night ever for the area.
Butler, who’s credited with creating one of the most famous touchdown celebrations in the NFL — the Lambeau Leap, is the fourth former city star to earn enshrinement, and the city was quick to celebrate its native son.
FSU also shared its congratulations:

Here’s what some current and former Packers had to say:
Congrats to my former teammates, @TonyBoselli and @leap36 . I’ve been blessed to play with so many great players who’ve shown me what excellence between the lines looks like.. I’m ecstatic to see both guys finally get the recognition that they’ve deserved. @Jaguars @packers ❤️🏈 https://t.co/sGcZtA4vWV— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) February 11, 2022
