GREEN BAY - The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football team is taking on Packers Alumni Saturday night in a Flag Football game. Packers legend Jerry Kramer joined us on NBC26 Today to tell us all about what to expect.
"We've got a lot of (Packers legends) coming in, 15-20," said Kramer. That list includes newly crowned Pro Football Hall of Famer Dave Robinson, new Packers Hall of Famer Chris Jacke and many others.
"The Warriors are a little concerned about hurting them. They feel they won't be in shape."
While Kramer joked about the contest, he also spoke of the special nature of the game.
"It should be a lot of fun, a great opportunity to thank our warriors...we're proud of you. We support you," he said.
"It's a chance to give back...it's filled with so many wonderful memories, wonderful moments...I feel a responsibility to give back."
The game is at St. Norbert College's Schneider Stadium starting at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $10.
