Yet this mind-blowing track is also directly connected to Green Bay Packers #37, a rockin' force in his own right. Though Sam Shields is new to all of us Green Bay Packers cheeseheads, he was a category four in his college days with the Miami Hurricanes. This dude clocked a 4.2 second 40 meter dash--the fastest of all the Hurricanes!
We're lucky to have this force of nature on Lambeau Field this fall. He was drafted in 2010 and is slated to be a Green Bay Packers cornerback after playing as defensive back for the past four seasons in college ball.
Now, to end this post, I have one last Green Bay Packers treat for you up my sleeve.
Wait for it...

Though Winter's life is much more challenging than Pat Lee's, it's pretty clear that the novel's title was fitting for his first season with the Green Bay Packers! Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Pat Lee played for Auburn's football squad and was at home in the sultry climes of Alabama. Yet in 2008, Pat Lee was drafted to the Green Bay Packers and was whisked away to the frozen tundra of east-central Wisconsin. No wonder his knee gave out in December of that year--it snapped like an ice-encrusted twig unused to the subzero temps at Lambeau Field!
Fortunately, Pat Lee has acclimated his body over the years though he maintains a home in Miami for those brutal Wisconsin Januarys. You can see him in his arctic glory this season. Hopefully he stays hot this season with the Green Bay Packers!
Let's hope his firey hair matches his on-field fire for playing in the NFL. (How'd you like that segue?) He is still a little known player who comes from the Kentucky Wildcats college football squad and was drafted in 2009, but quickly released just three months later, by the Indianapolis Colts. Since the Colts didn't work out, I'm chalking it up to the fact that Tim Masthay decided red hair looks best with green uniforms (opposite on the color wheel!) and has been angling for a spot on Lambeau Field ever since. Let's wish him the best this 2010-2011 Green Bay Packers season and see some red out on the field!
Bryan Bulaga was born March 21st, 1989 in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Bulaga played football for Marian Central Catholic High School and went on to play college football at the University of Iowa. In college, Bulaga was dominant from the beginning. He was named Freshmen All Big Ten and was on the 2009 Outland Trophy watch. After his junior season, Bulaga declared for the NFL Draft. He was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 23rd pick in the draft of the 1st round. Bulaga will spend this season competing with veterens Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher for playing time at the tackle positions.
