First off, I can't believe I'm writing a story about the Green Bay Packers. Here is the deal though, former Boylan standout Dean Lowry is in his sophomore season with the Packers and has everyone talking at training camp.

As the NFL experts say, the game is starting to "slow down" for #94 of the Green Bay Packers, as Dean's hard work is paying off already. The intense studying of the game is one thing, all of the schemes are making more sense. But there is also the physical side of "Mean" Dean Lowry:

It's funny because as a Chicago Bears fan, cheering for anything "green and gold" is difficult. But I did go to a Northwestern game to watch Dean, and he is a Rockford guy so I totally have an eye on him.
