Former Packers running back Dorsey Levens is humbled by the fact that the Packers are putting them into the Packers Hall of Fame Saturday at Lambeau Field Atrium. “My goal coming into Green Bay that first year was to make the practice squad,” he said. “That was it.” Levens was the Pack’s fifth round draft pick back in 1994, and made quite a career for himself in green and gold.
Levens was a part of the Packers’ Super Bowl championship season in 1996, eventually became the team’s starting halfback, earned Pro Bowl recognition and lasted 11 years in the NFL. “Oh man, I exceeded my expectations a hundredfold,” said Levens.
He told the Green Bay Press Gazette that his most memorable game was the teams 1996 NFC Title game win over the Panthers at Lambeau Field. “The NFC championship game in 1996. It was the game to go to the Super Bowl. I had over 200 yards of total offense. That was the biggest game of my career so far. To have the biggest game on one of the biggest stages, that was big for me. That was huge for me, actually.”
And Levens was a huge part of those great days for the Packers in the mid to late 90’s.
