Jonas Gray earns his own display in Patriots’ hall of fame
FOXBORO — Jonas Gray had a night no Patriots fan will ever forget. Now, they’ll always be reminded of it when they step in the team’s Hall of Fame and museum.
The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon announced Friday that its latest additions come Gray’s record-setting four touchdown game Sunday night in Indianapolis.
Gray had 201 yards on 37 carries and four rushing scores in New England’s 42-20 victory over the Colts on Sunday night football, scoring a TD in each quarter of the game.
Gray had 100 yards in the first half and 101 yards in the second half to become the first Patriots player to have 100 yards rushing in each half. He also became the third Patriots player to rush for 200 yards in a game and the first NFL player to score his first four career rushing touchdowns in one game since Herb Henderson of the Evansville Crimson Giants in 1921.
Gray’s performance earned him the NFL’s AFC Offensive Player of the Week award for Week 11. Fans visiting The Hall can now see Gray’s game-worn jersey and the ball he carried into the end zone for his record-setting fourth touchdown.
Other artifacts from the 2014 season on display include:
Additionally, fans can also visit The Hall’s featured exhibit, ‘New England Faithful: 20 Seasons with the Krafts,’ which looks back at the Kraft family’s first 20 years of ownership and highlights the team’s and the owner’s many accomplishments over two decades. The exhibit touches on Robert Kraft’s purchase of the team and its rise to prominence in the NFL.
The Hall is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Check www.thehallatpatriotplace.com for schedule changes and closings.
