LA CROSSE - There are thousands of cheeseheads in Wisconsin
But one boy in La Crosse County is taking his Packers pride to a whole new level.
A sixth grader has been wearing his Aaron Rodgers jersey for 1,035 consecutive days - nearly three years! It's ratty, torn up and faded, but with a goal of four years straight or more, he's not slowing down yet.
"I made the mistake of mentioning the boy that had worn the Brett Favre jersey just over four years and at that point he said, ‘Hmm is there a record?’ and I said “I don't know if there's a record for an Aaron Rodgers jersey,’ so he said ‘well I'm going to try and break the record.’"
He's the only Packers fan in the family! His entire family cheers on the Vikings. His younger brother now has the same goal, but, with a Vikings jersey on his back.
