Alaksan born and bred. No, not Sarah Palin! I'm talking about Daryn Colledge!

Daryn Colledge has showed us his tats on this blog before. But another interesting feature about this Green Bay Packers player is his hometown. He hails from a small town near Fairbanks, Alaska where his parents live today.

In high school at North Pole High (GREAT name for an Alaskan city and school!) Daryn Colledge was a natural football star. And--get this--he grew up on South Santa Claus Lane in North Pole, Alaska. North Pol sits about 14 miles southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska and the little town has a popluation of just 1,600 people. Better yet, its light poles are candy cane-themed! So charming!

Plus, Daryn College is only the EIGHTH Alaskan to ever be drafted in the NFL and he is the highest ranked Alaskan pro player. No wonder why he's smiling!

Today Daryn Colledge makes his home in Green Bay, Wisconsin because of the convenience to Lambeau Field and Green Bay Packers training and games. But you can bet where he spends his Christmas breaks...up in the charming city of North Pole!
