PUNT, PASS AND KICK WINNERS ANNOUNCED PRIOR TO NOON KICKOFF
Former Packers defensive lineman Gilbert Brown, a member of the Super Bowl XXXI Championship team, will serve as honorary captain for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
As part of the organization's season-long celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Super Bowl win, General Manager Ted Thompson has invited members of the 1996 team to serve as honorary captains for each of the Packers' home games.
Prior to Sunday's game, from 10:15 to 11 a.m., Brown will be visiting with fans on the Associated Bank Club Level, an area accessible to game attendees with private box or club seat tickets, as guest of the 'Alumni Meet and Greet.'
Other fan notes for Sunday: Packers fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 11:40 a.m. Sunday to witness the annual Punt, Pass and Kick passing demonstration and announcement of winners.
Sunday's participants, 20 boys and 20 girls ages 8 to 15, advanced through local, regional and sectional competitions across Wisconsin to reach the Packers' championship contest. The winners' results will be matched against others across the NFL and qualifying individuals will advance to the national contest to be held at a to-be-determined AFC playoff game.
The national anthem will be performed by Oshkosh native and Concord Records artist Erin Boheme prior to kickoff.
