Marquette Catholic High School will retire 1989 graduate Craig Hentrich’s No. 15 jersey at halftime of Marquette’s home game against Mater Dei at 7 p.m. on Sept. 3 at Public School Stadium.

Former Marquette head football coach John Waters will introduce Hentrich while current principal and former head football coach Michael Slaughter will serve as the master of ceremonies.

Hentrich retired in 2009 after 17 years in the NFL, the highlight of which was winning a Super Bowl championship in 1996 while with the Green Bay Packers. In 1998 and 2003, he was selected as an All-Pro and invited to the Pro Bowl, designations reserved for the best players at their position. He also holds the designation as the most successful punter and place kicker in the history of Notre Dame, where he holds the school record with a career 44.1 yard punting average and is the second all-time leading scorer in Notre Dame history with 294 career points. At Marquette, Hentrich was the most highly recruited high school kicker in the country and was named a USA Today All-American in his senior season.
