Former Green Bay Packers players Bryce Paup (linebacker, 1990-94), head football coach at Green Bay Southwest High School, and Dexter McNabb (fullback, 1992-93), assistant football coach at West De Pere High School, were awarded grants of $5,000 each for their respective football programs from the NFL Youth Football Fund.
Each player received their checks Thursday, Sept. 27, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Paup was joined by Chris Griesen, his assistant coach at Southwest High School and also a former NFL player (quarterback, Arizona Cardinals, 1999-2001).
The NFL Youth Football Fund (YFF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by the National Football League and the NFL Players Association. The YFF seeks to use football as a catalyst to promote positive youth development and also insure the health of grassroots football in future generations.
Through the NFL Player-Coach High School Football Grant Program, the YFF allows former NFL players who currently are registered as official head or assistant high school football coaches to apply for grants to help support their high school football teams.
