Eau Claire (WEAU)- Packers legendary quarterback Bart Starr was in Eau Claire Wednesday night, the guest speaker at the Boy Scouts of America fundraising dinner. The 80-year old Hall of Fame quarterback led the Packers to five NFL championships and was the MVP in both Super I and II.
Starr held a news conference for the local media at the Florian Gardens talking on a variety of subjects including his iconic coach Vince Lombardi, his Rawhide Boys Ranch, and had this message for young, aspiring football players.
Starr said, "The biggest message that you can give to them is the studying, the sacrifices, the paying very close attention to pieces and other things that are happening to them that they are being taught in the school system or the sporting arena can be very instrumental for them. So I think by telling them that making these type of sacrifices and paying close attention to what they can learn from others, take advantage of it and it will make them better."
