Watertown High School welcomes the Tour

Posted by Aaron Popkey on May 15, 2013 – 2:57 pm

Shortly after 11 a.m., the guys stopped by Watertown High School and were greeted by more than 1,200 students at an assembly.

After visiting with students at Waupun High School, another surprise stop was in store as the Tailgate Tour bus passed through Watertown. Shortly after 11 a.m., the guys stopped by Watertown High School and were greeted by more than 1,200 students at an assembly.

To get things formally started, a ceremonial first toss was conducted with Randall Cobb on the receiving end of a pass from Tarek Yaggi, the Gosling’s star quarterback who in the fall is headed to Bakersfield, Calif., Junior College. Later, during the question-and-answer session, Cobb gave a favorable review of the pass.

“He throws a good ball, certainly,” Cobb said.

“It was fun,” Yaggi said while admitting to being nervous. “I’ve watched him on Sunday catch passes from Aaron Rodgers and now I’ve been able to throw to him. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Santana Dotson reflected on playing with Brett Favre and in Super Bowls XXXI and XXXII, explaining to the assembly that he could tell upon joining the team for his first season in 1996 that expectations were high.

“They had reached the NFC Championship Game the year before, and the Super Bowl was the next step in everyone’s mind. No question about it,” Dotson said. “For me, getting introduced at the Super Bowl was an emotional moment. I knew my mom and wife were up in the stands crying.”

The members of the tour also received an emotional thank you from a student, Jordan Jeanson, for a donated football the Packers community outreach department supplied for a benefit for her mother, Trisha Pieper, who is undergoing kidney dialysis and is waiting for a kidney transplant.

Jeanson gave the players hugs and wished them well for the rest of the tour.
