Former Packers Dillon, Dowler to meet with fans this weekend

Posted Oct 25, 2012

Former players at Packers Pro Shop Saturday, Tundra Tailgate Zone and Legends Club Sunday

Leading up to the Green Bay Packers game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Oct. 28, featured Packers alumni Bobby Dillon and Boyd Dowler will be signing autographs and visiting with fans in the Packers Pro Shop on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

The Tundra Tailgate Zone will also feature Dowler on gameday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., where he will be visiting with fans and signing autographs. More information on the Tundra Tailgate Zone can be found online at www.packers.com/gameday/tundra-tailgate-zone.html.

Also on Sunday, Dillon will be visiting with fans and signing autographs from during that same time in the Legends Club on the Associated Bank Club Level, an area accessible to game attendees with suite or club seat tickets, as a guest of the ‘Alumni Meet and Greet.’

Dillon, a third-round 1952 NFL Draft pick, intercepted 52 passes in his nine seasons as a Green Bay Packers defensive back. A graduate of the University of Texas, the five-time All Pro was Green Bay’s interception leader or co-leader for seven consecutive seasons, a Packers record. To this day, he remains the team’s all-time interception leader. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1974.

Dowler, a highly-decorated wide receiver, played 10 years (1959-69) for the Green Bay Packers. He was a two-time Pro Bowler and five-time NFL Champ, including the first two Super Bowls. He was knocked out of the game in the first quarter during Super Bowl I, but he made his presence felt early on in Super Bowl II, hauling in a 62-yard touchdown catch that helped the Packers beat the Oakland Raiders, 33-14. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1978.

Both former Packers players will be introduced on Lambeau Field during pregame festivities.
