Ferndale's own T.J. Lang!

Ever heard of Ferndale, Michigan? Me neither.

The city of 22,000 lies just outside of Detroit. You want some fast facts and a handy dandy map this suburban enclave? No prob, Bob.

Map of Ferndale
  • The southern city boundary is "8 Mile Road," made popular by Eminem's 2002 hip hop film of a similar title.

  • The city elected Michigan's first openly gay mayor back in 2007.

  • Nicknames for the town include "Fashionable Ferndale" and "Fabulous Ferndale."
And of course, Ferndale is home to a relatively new Green Bay Packers' player: T.J. Lang. In fact, when the 6'4" 318 pound offensive lineman was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 2009, he was one of just three draft picks in all of the Packers' franchise history to come from eastern Michigan, and the first to have been selected from that region in 37 years.

Ferndale is excited for T.J. Lang, and as Michigan's neighboring state, we can certainly be pumped about T.J. Lang. Though he didn't see playing time in 2009-2010, he had a strong college career back in Eastern Michigan and was nominated as a Gatorade Player of the Year.

Hopefully this momentum, plus a year on the NFL sidelines, has helped T.J. Lang develop skills and technique to see some action with the Green Bay Packers in 2010. Do Ferndale and the Green Bay Packers proud, T.J. Lang!
