Boise Boy Helps Green Bay Packer Player Make it to Training Camp
Did you know that the Greenbay Packers have a tradition of borrowing children's bikes to get to their practice field? One Boise boy happened to be vacationing at the right place at the right time to be part of the tradition!
According to the Idaho Statesman, 9 year-old Oliver Welcker was standing on the side of the procession yelling "Ride the potato bike. I came all the way from Idaho!"
That cheer caught the attention of a very special Green Bay Rookie! Tyler Kunder played defensive tackle for Payette High and Idaho State before being selected by the Green Bay Packers. He picked Welcker's bike to get to training camp that day and the little boy got to carry his helmet along the route.
