NOW: LeRoy Butler makes one more Lambeau Leap during ring of honor ceremony

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Packers Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler had another special night at Lambeau Field during Thursday night's game. 

His name was unveiled in the team's ring of honor inside the stadium celebrating his 12-year career -- a career spent entirely in Packers green and gold.

Butler made a point of telling the crowd Thursday night how important it was that he played for only one team.

Butler has been a fan favorite for a long time, and on Friday we caught up with him to get his thoughts on Thursday night's ceremony.

"When you play at that stadium, you see the names up there, you don't say to yourself, 'one day that's gonna be me.' But when it happens, it's kind of overwhelming," Butler said. 

It's been quite a year for LeRoy Butler. A few months ago, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, an honor he waited a long time for. 

Now, his name will forever be seen by the fans at Packers games. And as a gesture of gratitude Thursday night, the man who did the very first Lambeau Leap decades ago did one more, with a little help from a stepladder.

"I love the fan base, I really do. And to do the last leap, for the last time, in the same area kinda where I did the first one, I mean that was epic," Butler said. "I'll never forget that."

Butler, who's also a brand ambassador for Roundy's Supermarkets, appeared at two Metro Market openings, events that included donations to charitable organizations.
