The NFL named Perry's own Casey Hayward as October's NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month.
According to Packers.com, Greenbay Packers' # 29 cornerback Hayward "tied for the lead among all players in October with four interceptions."
His interceptions occured in three back-to-back games and became the first Packers rookie to "intercept four passes in a three-game spance since 1984."
Along with Hayward's October interceptions, he also tallied 13 tackles and five passes defensed.
Hayward served as Perry's Parade Grand Marshal during the Independence Parade in July 2012, a Perry Chamber of Commerce email newsletter says.
