Denmark is the first stop on Packers Tailgate Tour

Randall Cobb races a student at Denmark High School

The Packers Tailgate Tour is on the road after its first surprise stop at Denmark High School. More than 1,500 students, faculty and staff were on hand to participate in a Play 60 assembly with the guys.

Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy introduced the players and asked Jarrett Bush to talk to the crowd about work ethic, a key component to success.

He then asked Aaron Taylor to discuss attitude.

“Attitude is the difference-maker,” Taylor said. “Your attitude will determine how you do in life. Waking up each day with the intent to be great is the key.”

The first hug of the tour occurred at 9:20 a.m., as Randall Cobb obliged a student from the group. It will be the first of many over the next five days.

During one of the answers to the questions, Murphy said, “Go Vikings,” in regard to Denmark High School’s moniker.

“I don’t normally say that, but in Denmark it’s appropriate,” he explained.

Cobb was challenged to race by Nicolau Carnaval, a 16-year-old exchange student from Brazil. It appeared that Carnaval beat Cobb, but the third-year wide receiver disputed that.

“I’m not sure about that,” Cobb said. “Maybe he did.”

In the spirit of Play 60, the players led a group of students through stretching exercises, and then raced a group of preschoolers.

The current players, who are in the midst of offseason workouts, had no issues, but the alumni have varying degrees of exercise routines.

“I’m exhausted,” said Frank Winters with a laugh. “I haven’t run that far in years.”

The bus continued south toward tonight’s destination, Oshkosh, with a few more stops in store during the day.
