Green Bay Packers alumni Frank Wintersand Greg Kochwill be in Green Bay this weekend taking part in various fan activities leading up to the Packers-Bears game.
Winters, a Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion, anchored the Packers offensive line for 11 seasons (1992-2002). He was a steadfast center who played in 156 games, starting 141 during his career. He blocked for some of the most productive offensive units in team history, including the 1996 championship team that amassed 456 points, the second-highest total in Packers history. He was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2008.
Koch, a fierce competitor in the trenches, secured the right tackle position in Green Bay for nine seasons, (1977-85). He played in 133 games, starting 120 for the Green and Gold. In 1983 he was a part of the Packers 48-47 win over the Redskins, which is the highest scoring Monday Night Football game in history. This past July he was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame.
