A.J. Hawk to attend ‘NFL Broadcast Boot Camp’

Posted by Duke Bobber on June 3, 2013 – 9:32 am

NFL Broadcast Boot Camp

Packers LB A.J. Hawk is among the 24 current and former NFL players slated to take part in the league’s seventh annual “NFL Broadcast Boot Camp” at NFL Films in Mt. Laurel, N.J., from June 17-20.

Green Bay Packers LB A.J. HawkThe seminar includes instructors from the NFL’s various broadcast partners and introduces the participants to the different parts of broadcast operations. All the players will serve as live guest host on SiriusXM NFL Radio during the program.

Hawk, a first-round draft pick in 2006, joins several other former Packers players who have participated in the program.

Former Packers LB Na’il Diggs will also participate in the program. Diggs, a fourth-round draft pick in 2000, played six seasons for the Packers. After his collegiate career at Ohio State, Diggs played in 84 games for Green Bay.

According to a league press release, 128 players have taken part in the camp from 2007-12, and 48 of them have earned broadcasting jobs. Last season former Packers T Mark Tauscher, along with former Patriots WR/CB Troy Brown, was selected to serve as a studio analyst for an NFL regular-season Sunday on Sky Sports in the U.K.

Tauscher, a seventh-round selection in the 2000 NFL Draft, played in 134 games for the Packers during his 11-year career. The former Wisconsin Badger was the team’s 2008 recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award. Voted on by his teammates, the award is given annually to one member of each NFL team for displaying commitments to the principles of courage and sportsmanship while serving as inspirations in their locker rooms.

    A while back, Vic asked the question: What does the webmaster do? I am wondering the same thing with as porous as the Packer website has become. The main page doesn’t load (only site that doesn’t do that) No videos. No discussion. Junk.

    This is the only part of the website that works properly.

    NO1 yearwondersforGB, not experiencing your problems with the website. Sure your computer is not having issues. All videos working fine for me.

    I saw Tauscher when he was on – did a nice job.

    Good luck to AJ, always worthwhile trying things out for later careers

    Please send me your information at bobberd (at) packers.com and I’ll try to help you out. I think your issues are isolated to your device. I haven’t heard any similar complaints.

    Nice to see AJ looking at options after football. However, if he doesn’t start playing more effectively at ILB, he may be pursuing that broadcasting career sooner than he thought.
