Rockford Native, Boylan High School Graduate, Northwestern University Alumni, and current Green Bay Packer, Dean Lowry talks to Double T from 96.7 The Eagle about his journey from Rockford to the NFL.

Dean Lowry is someone Rockford should be really proud of.

He was born and raised in the Forest City.

He attended and played football at Boylan Catholic High School where he won back-to-back state championships under legendary local head coach Dan Appino.

He went on to get a scholarship to go to Northwestern University which is a Big 10 school. Great place for academics and to play football under head coach Pat Fitzgerald.

Then taken in the 4th round of the NFL draft by the Green Bay Packers.

I got a chance to chat with Lowry. Here's my interview.
