Packers Fans Return to the Training Camp Tradition

By Josh Hughes. CREATED Jul 26, 2014

GREEN BAY --  The youngest green and gold fans meeting some of their role models before hitting the practice field.  Today starts off with the DreamDrive.  A tradition started by Vince Lombardi, now Packers President and CEO, Mark murphy, taking it a step further.

"We want this to continue for years so the kids can fulfill all their dreams," said Murphy.

While the excitement builds, fans start the discussion about this season's predictions.  And a once quiet Ray Nitschke field now see's "railbirds" packing the fence 3 deep.  As the Packers kick off training camp with the first of 21 practices, Packers fans are looking forward to a fresh start with new players.  But one in particular being watched closely by everyone, the Pack's round one draft pick.  Whether your're from Green Bay, Illinois, or even California, the first day of packers camp never gets old.

"We love the atmosphere, we love the people here.  We love actually interacting with the players and interacting with the fans," said California Packer fan Curt Cozad.

As the days' events spread beyond practice, the chant "Go Pack Go,"reminds everyone that football is back.
