Youth football players receive surprise tickets


SUAMICO - Football players and coaches from Duck Creek Pop Warner got a surprise Monday night.

Former Packers receiver Bill Schroeder distributed 400 Packers tickets.

The tickets are for the Packers' last preseason game of the year when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

The giveaway helps continue the Packers' recognition of USA Football month.

"It makes the people understand that this is a community and the Green Bay Packers are part of this community and they want to encourage this kind of support," said Bill Schroeder.

Schroeder also talked with parents and players on the importance of proper tackling techniques to prevent injury.
