Cory Uttech of Sheboygan selected as grand prize winner of Lambeau Leap sweepstakes

Posted Nov 20, 2012

The Green Bay Packers, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Robert Haack Diamonds have selected a grand prize winner of the Lambeau Leap Sweepstakes after 10 randomly selected finalists came to Lambeau Field on Nov. 20 and performed their best Lambeau Leap.

The final phase of the sweepstakes included a Lambeau Leap training, Q-and-A session and photograph opportunity with Packers wide receiver James Jones for 10 finalists. Following the Lambeau Leap training, the finalists went on a stadium tour, which ended on the field where each finalist had the chance to show their best Lambeau Leap to Bret Eulberg of Robert Haack Diamonds, who judged the competition.

The grand prize winner of the sweepstakes competition is Cory Uttech of Sheboygan.

Uttech will make his leap at halftime during the Packers-Lions game on Dec. 9, the first ever time that a fan has been given the chance to do so during a game. In addition to his leap into the stands, Uttech also will receive four club seats to that game, four VIP sidelines passes, a game ball, a Packers jersey with Uttech’s name on the back and a one-night accommodation in Green Bay. All finalists received a jersey autographed by Jones.

The 10 finalists were randomly selected from 35 semifinalists, who received gift cards to the Packers Pro Shop and Robert Haack Diamonds.

The other finalists were Jane Beutin, South Milwaukee; Heidi Mabie, Plymouth; Steven Geary, Madison; Sharon Guenther, Onalaska; Cindy Buchkowski, Mosinee; Adam Roberts, Fond du Lac; Jake Wickman, Shawano; Jeffery Nyberg, Pleasant Prairie; and Tom Finiak, Franklin.

    For now, Ohio State’s Curtis Samuel is listed as a wide receiver, but he did just as much damage as a running back and returner in college as well. That leaves his NFL future somewhat in doubt, as far as where he fits best, but that’s nothing new to this explosive, hybrid weapon.

    A first-team All-Big Ten selection two years in a row at guard, Pat Elflein was asked to move to center in 2016. How did he do? He not only was named first-team all-conference again, but he was a consensus All-American and the Rimington Trophy winner as the nation’s top center in his first year full-time at the position. So what will he play in the NFL? Guard or center?

    Penn State receiver Chris Godwin has put up some pretty good numbers, with 128 catches for just over 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns over the last two seasons. But he wants NFL teams to know his game is more than just the numbers.
