She Beads
It started in 1993, when lifelong artist and designer, Sandy Rueve was working as an x-ray technician for the Chicago Bulls. When Michael Jordan discovered her stringing beads one night in the locker room, he asked her to make a bracelet for him. Soon after, she was overwhelmed with requests for her clay beads. Sandy's dream had always been to use her artistic talents and gifts to touch people's lives. She had finally found her creative niche. She Beads® was born.

Chris Hanburger
The Washington Redskins picked North Carolina linebacker Chris Hanburger in the 18th round of the 1965 NFL Draft. The All-American started to make his mark late in his rookie season as he began to form a reputation as a player who made big plays. Soon thereafter he assumed the role as the “quarterback” of the Redskins defense while becoming one of the most dependable and steady linebackers of his era. He was an integral part of the dominant Redskins teams of the 1970s. At the same time that Washington was rising to the top of the NFL, Hanburger began earning national acclaim. He was selected first-team All-Pro four times in a five-season span from 1972 to 1976 and named All-Eastern Conference in 1968 and 1969 and All-NFC six times in seven seasons from 1970 to 1976. Hanburger was also voted to nine Pro Bowls in his 14-season career. His performance in the 1972 season gained him perhaps his greatest notoriety as he helped lead the Redskins to its first ever Super Bowl berth. He recorded numerous game-changing plays throughout the season as Washington won the NFC East with an 11-3 mark. He shared the team lead with a career-high four interceptions which he returned for 98 yards. That total included an interception of a Joe Namath pass which he returned 41 yards for a touchdown in Washington’s 35-17 win over the New York Jets on Nov. 5. His strong play continued into that year’s postseason as the Redskins downed the Green Bay Packers 16-3 in the divisional playoff before facing the division rival Dallas Cowboys in the 1972 NFC Championship Game. Hanburger pitched in with two tackles and six assists as the Redskins routed the Cowboys 26-3. He added another strong game in his only Super Bowl appearance when he recorded four solo tackles and assisted on two others in a 14-7 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VII. In all, Hanburger recovered three fumbles for touchdowns which stood as an NFL record at the time of his retirement following the 1978 season. He also had 19 career interceptions for 347 yards and 2 TDs.

Willie Davis
fter two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, Willie Davis came to the Green Bay Packers in a 1960 trade for offensive lineman A.D. Williams. At the time, it was quite likely that the Browns, who had selected Davis in the 15th round of the 1956 draft and intended to use him as an offensive tackle, didn't know what they were giving up. But Packers GM/Head Coach Vince Lombardi apparently knew what he was getting. Once asked to describe the attributes of a great player, Lombardi said, "You look for speed, agility and size. You may get two of these qualities in one man and when you have three, you have a great player. In Willie Davis, we have a great one. For a big man, 6-3 and 240 pounds, he has excellent agility and he has great sincerity and determination." For 10 seasons, Davis anchored the Packers' defensive line, playing 138 consecutive regular-season games, part of 162 consecutive regular-season games for his NFL career. Davis was member to all five of Lombardi's NFL title-winning teams and played in Super Bowls I and II. Over the course of his career, playing in an era when neither tackles nor sacks were official statistics, Davis earned Associated Press All-Pro honors five times ('62, '64-67). Meanwhile, he was voted to the Pro Bowl five times ('63-67). Davis recovered 21 fumbles over his Packers career, which, more than three decades removed from his retirement, remains a team record. Davis wore number 87 during his Packers career.
