Scott Kruse, grand prize winner of Ultimate Leap sweepstakes, will perform leap this Sunday

Posted Dec 16, 2013

Scott Kruse of Grafton, grand prize winner of Ultimate Leap sweepstakes, will perform leap at game this Sunday

As the winner of the Ultimate Leap Sweepstakes, Scott Kruse of Grafton, Wis., will be making his Lambeau Leap this Sunday during halftime of the Green Bay Packers-Pittsburgh Steelers contest.

Kruse was selected by the Packers, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Robert Haack Diamonds and Pick ‘n Save from eight randomly selected finalists during an event at Lambeau Field on Dec. 3.

The event, the final phase of the sweepstakes, included a Lambeau Leap training, Q-and-A session and photograph opportunity with Packers tight end Andrew Quarless. 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.

Kruse’s leap will be only the second time a fan has been given the chance to do so during a game. In addition to his leap into the stands, Kruse also will receive four club seats to the game, four VIP sidelines passes, a game ball, a Packers jersey with Kruse’s name on the back and a one-night accommodation in Green Bay. All finalists received a jersey autographed by Quarless.

The eight finalists were randomly selected from 35 semifinalists, who received gift cards to Robert Haack Diamonds and Pick ‘n Save.

The other finalists were Tim Suderland, Oak Creek; Jeff Kolasinski, Appleton; Meghan Lemke, West Bend; Mike Kolter, Brookfield; Andi Hetzer, West Allis; Joe Powell, Milwaukee; and Andrew Hull, Algonquin, Ill.
