Gibraltar Boys Top Kewaunee In Packerland Conference Opener 53-45


By Brandon Enroth




The Gibraltar Vikings defeated the visiting Kewaunee Storm on Tuesday night by a final of 53-45. The Vikings were able to come back and overcome a seven-point halftime deficit to win their first in-conference game of the season moving to (2-0) overall. Kewaunee moves to (0-1) on the season as this was their opening contest of the season with plenty of games left down the stretch to play.

 

Kewaunee was able to come out to a hot start with a 17-8 lead barely six minutes into the contest. Then Gibraltar added a full-court trap press which forced the Kewaunee guards Mitchell Kudik, and Wes Gallenberger to make fast decisions with the basketball, some resulting in fast breaks while many resulted in errant passes leading to a transition fast break for Gibraltar off the turnover.

 

Jacob Basten was the all around best player for the Storm. He was a force in the paint during the first half racking up 10 points against opposing center Tyler Kroupenske however, he would become less of a factor in the second half due to foul trouble. Kroupenske talked about his game plan matching up with Basten.

 



 

Nathan Surges led the way for the Gibraltar Vikings offensively accumulating a season high 18 points. The shifty guard made many excellent plays with his passing and quick release of a shot to lead the comeback which started early in the second half. Gibraltar was able to utilize many turnovers down the stretch and create points off of turnovers. Surges talked about the play of his team coming into the game.

 



 

Free throws also played a crucial factor within the last 4 minutes or so of the second half. Both teams entered the bonus and Gibraltar was able to capitalize on free points from the free throw line that in the end proved the difference in their 53-45 victory.

Gibraltar plays next on the road at Omro on Friday at 7:15 pm. Kewaunee looks to rebound quickly on Thursday against Two Rivers at 7:30 pm.

Packerland Conference Boys Hoops Tuesday Results


By Nick Freimuth




There is a new all-time three-point shots made leader at Southern Door High School. After draining seven three's in a 90-71 win over N.E.W. Lutheran Nick LeCaptain is the new all-time record holder for the Eagles. Nick LeCaptain finished with 28 points in the offensive explosion for Southern Door.

 

Sturgeon Bay also earned their first Packerland Conference victory of the season. The Clippers topped Oconto 64-55. It was a solid night shooting the ball for Sturgeon Bay including 18 points from Mitchell Jackson and 17 points from Connor "Air" Gajda.

 

Algoma ran up the score on Sevastopol in a big way Tuesday. A 102-23 final had Pioneers Coach Andy Symons left searching for answers. He said, " (I) don't have much to say. We are very young and inexperienced."

Varsity Girls Basketball Tuesday Night

Algoma also started extremely slow Tuesday night. The Wolves scored just seven points in the first half en route to a 55-24 loss at home to DePere. Sierra Nessinger was the Wolves leading scorer with seven points. Alli Spitzer scored five points in the loss.

Luxemburg-Casco fell to Wrightstown at home Tuesday night 62-42. The Spartans got off to a slow start and were unable to recover. L-C trailed 34-12 at the half. They did scored 30 points in the second half. Jenna Jorgensen led Luxemburg-Casco in scoring with 11 points.

2016 Deer Camp Of The Year - Dick & Joan Baudhuin


By Nick Freimuth




Dick and Joan Baudhuin and the Baudhuin Deer Camp were selected by Deer Hunter's Round-Up as the 2016 "Deer Camp of the Year." Dennis Anschutz and I had the privilege of touring their deer camp and what we saw was absolutely amazing.

 

The Baudhuin house is like a taxidermy museum. Mountain lions, bobcats, bears, turkey, waterfowl, bison, whitetail and pelts from nearly a dozen more animals were on display. Walking in the front door was like walking into Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. It is a hunter's paradise.

 

You are greeted with geese and mallards suspended from the ceiling.  Moving from birds in flight, the eye next gravitates to two giant mountain lions on log beams. A bobcat accompanies the big cats 10 feet in the air.

 

A step to the left is a pair of black bears. One mounted in attack mode from the wall, the other is a walking 250-pounder Joan shot. A giant bison stares down at you from behind. The back wall has 12 world class whitetails. I believe the Baudhuin's have more whitetail mounts in their house (16 total) than the Whitetails Unlimited National Headquarters in Sturgeon Bay.

 

Every animal and every harvest has a great story. Some Dick and Joan agree on even. The 80-year-old pair self admittedly is on injured reserve. Joan had back surgery seven weeks ago. Dick is lucky to be walking after falling out of his tree stand opening day. Broken ribs and a punctured lung did not keep Dick from sharing his passion for whitetails and hunting, however.

 

The Baudhuin's had nine family members hunting the property in 2016. They harvested eight bucks and 11 does. Harvesting does is something Dick feels is of utmost importance. The hunters all sit in the elements. No stand is completely enclosed. None have windows.

 

The beautiful log cabin sits aside a pristine man-made pond that once had five islands; one for each of their children.  The 500 acre property features swamp, cedar, hardwoods, highland and field. The 2016 "Deer Camp of the Year" was an award that Dennis Anshutz and I were so excited to hand out! Dick and Joan Baudhuin were extremely gracious and welcoming. Their son Mike and grandson Nick Schultz welcomed us and shared tremendous stories as well.

 

A video of the Baudhuin Camp is featured below this story along with some incredible photos that help paint the picture of a truly impressive homestead. Congratulations to Dick and Joan Baudhuin. If you would like to nominate a deer camp for Deer Hunter's Round-Up to honor in 2017, please email freimuth@doorcountydailynews.com.

Sevastopol Girls Win Non-Conference Match Up Monday


By Nick Freimuth

Packers End Four-Game Losing Streak In Philadelphia


By Nick Freimuth




The Packers Never Trailed in a 27-13 win in Philadelphia last night on Monday Night Football. Aaron Rodgers returned to his MVP form completing 30 of 39 passes for 313 yards and two touchdowns. He spread the ball around to his top three receivers evenly. Jordy Nelson had eight receptions for 91 yards. Randall Cobb was a first down machine and finished with six receptions. Davante Adams played maybe his best game of his career. He tallied five receptions for 113 yards including two touchdown catches.

The running game is slowly coming back as well. Aaron Rodgers was not the leading rusher for the first time in a couple weeks. James Starks carried the ball 14 times for 41 yards in the win. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix also made a sensational play to seal the win. His interception was one of the few takeaways the Packers have mustered during the difficult month of November.

The Packers are back home Sunday for a noon kickoff with the Houston Texans. Green Bay is two games behind the Lions and a game back of Minnesota in the race for the NFC North Division Championship.

Gibraltar Boys Basketball Ready For Home Opener Against Kewaunee


By Brandon Enroth




The Gibraltar Boys Basketball team returns home on Tuesday night for their first taste of Packerland conference action against the Kewaunee Storm. Gibraltar enters the matchup  1-0 after an excellent road win against Chilton on November 22nd, while this will be Kewaunee's opening game of the 2016-17 campaign.

 

Nathan Surges will look to continue his strong start to the year leading the Vikings in scoring 14 points against the Tigers. Tyler Kroupenske had quite the game as well scoring 10 points, gathering 9 rebounds and 5 steals.

 

Kewaunee comes into the '16-'17 finishing 12-12 last season and will start this year's campaign under new head coach Barry Harris. Despite the Storm losing leading scorer Zachary Baumgartner from last season, a strong core of seniors led by Wes Gallenberger looks to fill the shoes left by Baumgartner into this faceoff with the Vikings. Gibraltar Head Coach Justin Burress comments on what kind of attack his team will see from the Storm tomorrow night.

 



 

In their games last season, Kewaunee swept the season series winning at home and in Fish Creek by decent margins. Tuesday's matchup should provide be an electric atmosphere within the Gibraltar High School Gymnasium. The game will be available for listeners on 105.1 More FM starting at 7:00 pm with the Sister Bay Piggily Wiggly Pre-Game show, then play-by-play commentary provided by Brandon Enroth at 7:30 pm.

 

 

 

 

 

Badgers Football Prepares For Showdown With Penn State In Big 10 Championship


By Brandon Enroth




The Wisconsin Badgers finished off the regular season on Saturday in comeback fashion against the Minnesota Golden Gophers by a final score of 31-17. This caps a strong regular season for the Badgers as they finish 10-2 (7-2) overall and have earned a spot in the Big 10 Championship Game against the East-Division Champion Penn. State Nittany Lions. The Lions finished the regular season blowing out the Michigan State Spartans 45-12 ending with 10-2 (8-1) record.

 

One big question coming into the game for the Badgers will be the status of Alex Hornibrook. Hornibrook left Saturday's game in the 1st half after taking a hard hit out of bounds from Minnesota linebacker Jack Lynn and did not return. His status coming into this game at this point is questionable with a head injury. This leaves the offense in the hands of senior Bart Houston, who has played well this season in Paul Cryst's dual-quarterback led offense.

 

 

Penn State will look to lean on their explosive offense led by QB Trace McSorley who has thrown for nearly 3,000 yards this season racking up 21 touchdowns, and only throwing 3 interceptions. He will likely test the Badgers secondary through one of his favorite targets Chris Godwin the team's leading receiver. The Nittany Lions high powered offense will be matched up nicely with the number seven ranked Badger defense led by T.J Watt, Leo Musso, and Vince Biegel. Wisconsin has held opponents to 100 yards rushing per game and has only allowed 13.7 points per game the entire year.

 

 

In a matchup that doesn't include Michigan or Ohio State, the 2016 Big 10 Championship should be an intense matchup in all phases of the game. The game will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis this upcoming Saturday, December 3rd at 7:00 PM CT on the networks of FOX Sports.

Record Year For Budweiser Deer Hunter's Round Up


By Nick Freimuth




In the 11 year history of Deer Hunter's Round-Up on 104.1 FM WRLU, 2016 will go down as the most well attended season. We enjoyed packed houses at Wave Pointe, Tippy Canoe, Valmy Happy Hour, Brick Lot Pub and Grill, Institute Saloon and Richard's Pub and Grill.

Dennis "The Buck Baggin' Barber" Anschutz served as co-host again along with special guest Dave Rady from Smokey Ridge Taxidermy. Whitetails Unlimited, Flanigan Distributing, Virlee Gunworks, and Saguaro Day Spa all provided some incredible prizes that were handed out every night of the show.

The grand finale was held at Richard's Pub and Grill Sunday night and parking was at a premium. Door County Fish Farm and Game also held their nine-gun raffle during the show. Next year, Tippy Canoe will serve as the grand finale location.

Thank you to all the sponsors, hosts, hunters and regulars for making the 2016 Budweiser Deer Hunter's Round-Up the best year yet!

Packers Vs. Eagle Tonight ON MNF


By Green Bay Packers




Lincoln Financial Field will be rocking in Philadelphia when the Packers and Eagles kickoff at 7:30 PM. The Packers won the last matchup against the Eagles, 53-20, at Lambeau Field in 2014. Green Bay won each of its last two games at Philadelphia as well, 21-16 in the 2010 Wild Card playoffs and 27-20 during the 2010 regular season.

The Packers lead the regular-season series against the Eagles, 25-14. Including the postseason, Green Bay has won four of the last five matchups against Philadelphia.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson played quarterback from the Packers from 1996-98 and 2001-04. Monday will be the third time in the last four seasons Green Bay and Philadelphia have played each other.

The Packers have posted 400-plus total yards of offense in three straight games, just the second time in the last seven seasons that Green Bay has done that (Weeks 8, 10-11 in 2014). The Packers have scored 23 or more points in seven of the last eight games. Dating back to Week 3, they are tied for the second-most 23-plus point games in the NFL, trailing only the Dallas Cowboys, who have eight (according to pro-football-reference.com).

Under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, Green Bay is 83-43-1 during the regular season against NFC opponents. The Packers' 83 wins and .657 winning percentage both rank No. 1 among NFC teams over that span.

Green Bay is 35-28 on the road against NFC teams since 2006, a .556 winning percentage that ranks No. 2 in the NFC, trailing only the Dallas Cowboys (37-26, .587). The Packers are playing three road games in a row for the first time since 2012 and only the third time in the last 19 seasons (also 1998).

Green Bay will return to Lambeau Field next Sunday to play its first home game in nearly a month when they host the Houston Texans in their last scheduled matchup against an AFC opponent. The Packers will finish the regular season with four games against NFC foes, including the last three against division opponents.Save

Weekend Girls High School Basketball Scores


By David Meyer




The Sevastopol girls basketball team hit the road over Thanksgiving weekend to take part in the Lena Holiday Tournament.  On Friday the team fell to Three Lakes 76-37 and was led in scoring by Amber Roalkvan who totaled 14 points.  On Saturday the Pioneers took the court for the consolation game against host school Lena.  Lena came out on top 47-35, but Jillie Jorns scored 19 points for Sevastopol and turned that performance into a spot on the Lena All-Tournament Team.  In other action on Saturday Valders took care of Algoma 65-30.

Badgers Clinch Spot in Big Ten Championship Game


By David Meyer




With Nebraska's loss to Iowa yesterday, the Wisconsin Badgers will represent the West division in the Big Ten title game once again.  But, that doesn't make today's game versus Minnesota any less important.  With a win today and a win against Penn State or Michigan, the Badgers could have a shot at making the four-team College Football Playoff.  The appearance in the Big Ten championship game will be the fourth for the Badgers in the short six-year existence of the game, the most of any team.

Potential Ice Breaking Operations Could Derail Winter Anglers


By Tim Kowols




The closure of a gas pipeline from Milwaukee to Green Bay could have unintended consequences this winter. Oil tankers have been shuttling through the Port of Green Bay with shipments since the pipeline was closed indefinitely in June. If ice breaking operations are needed on the bay this winter to keep oil imports flowing through the port, ice fishing guide JJ Malvitz says his business could take a hit because of safety concerns.

 



 

Malvitz is not just worried about his business either.

 



 

The United States Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw is the ship in charge of heavy ice breaking operations on the Great Lakes.

High School Basketball Season Underway


By Nick Freimuth




Kewaunee has proven early in Packerland Conference girls basketball that they will be a major contender for the league title. After a 75-16 win over Sturgeon Bay Tuesday, the Storm appear poised for a great run this season. The Clippers were led by Andie Rockendorf with eight points.

Sevastopol had a similar outcome as Sturgeon Bay Tuesday. The Pioneers could not get their offense going against N.E.W. Lutheran and fell 62-20. Lexie LeClaire was the Pioneers leading scorer with six points.

Southern Door won a defensive battle with Oconto 39-21. The Eagles were led by Megan Pavlik with 11 points.

In varsity boys basketball, Manitowoc Lutheran got the best of Sevastopol 75-40. Brent Haeberli scored 14 points to lead Sevastopol.

Southern Door was a non-conference winner 77-58 over Two Rivers.

Packers & Eagles Have Had Their Struggles This Season


By Green Bay Packers




Monday Night Football will not feature two of the top teams in the NFC like the schedule makers had hoped prior to the season. Instead, the (4-6) Green Bay Packers will travel to the (5-5) Philadelphia Eagles for a prime time match-up.

Monday marks the last game of a three-game road trip for the Packers. This is the 24th consecutive season (1993-2016) that Green Bay is appearing on Monday Night Football, the second-longest streak in the league behind only Denver's 25-year span (1992-2016). It is the Packers' lone MNF appearance this season.

Green Bay is (30-31-1) all-time on MNF and has won its past two appearances. It is the fourth meeting between the two teams on MNF. They last played against each other on MNF in 2006, a 31-9 Eagles victory in Philadelphia.

Gibraltar Wins OT Thriller Over Algoma In Home Opener 58-54


By Brandon Enroth




There was a playoff atmosphere at Gibraltar High School on Monday night when the Wolves and the Vikings went to battle in front of a packed gymnasium. The blue and yellow faithful showed up in huge numbers to attend the home opener for the Vikings, and they were rewarded with a 58-54 overtime win. Head Coach Josh Kropuenske reflects on how big this win was for his team.

 



 

The pace was different for the Vikings on offense, and the confidence level was obvious on defense. Payton Pluff and Sheridan Ash led the Vikings on an offense attack which originally started on the perimeter with guards Hannah Helm, Abigail Sitte, and Raina Haleen driving left or right off the dribble to immediately find Pluff or Ash posted up in the paint. The 6'1 and 5'11 forwards scored huge points down the stretch, providing leadership that according to Kropuenske, the rest of the team fed off of.

 



 

Algoma held the lead for most of the 2nd half, until the clock showed with 5:00 remaining. From then on it was a back and forth battle filled with turnovers, confusion, and crucial officiating calls that had coaches, benches, and fan bases that much more engaged in the contest. The key turning point in overtime was a loose ball foul called against Algoma's Courtney Guilette when she fouled Peyton Pluff. Pluff headed to the free-throw line with her team only leading by three. She made one out of the two free-throws, which gave Gibraltar a four-point lead and the defense held strong to earn them the victory.

 

Gibraltar moves to (1-2) and prepares to play again on Friday, December 2nd against Green Bay New Lutheran. After suffering their first in-conference loss in over 50 regular season games, Algoma moves to (1-2) and will face Valders at home this coming Saturday, November 26th.

Jim Olson Motors Red Zone Creates Smiles


By Nick Freimuth




The entire place turned to smiles, jaw drops and grasps for cell phone cameras when Packers quarterback Brett Hundley walked into the Jim Olson Motors Red Zone Monday night. Sevastopol Youth Girls Basketball was our team of the week and the Pioneers had a blast. Coaches Kevin Schultz, Amy Ash and Ben and Beth Rikkola introduced all of the girls as they each starred on 104.1 FM WRLU.

Despite a four-game losing streak, Brett Hundley was still extremely excited and upbeat about the Packers chances to make the playoffs. He said there aren't many teams that could dig themselves out of this hole but he believes Green Bay could do it. Hundley even went as far as repeating Aaron Rodgers famous "R-E-L-A-X" quote last night on air.

The Red Zone will return in two weeks to the air waves when we help Jim Olson open up the brand new Ford Store to the public for the very first time.

Gibraltar Boys Basketball Ready For Road Opener At Chilton


By Brandon Enroth




The Gibraltar Boys basketball team begins the 2016-17 regular season on the road tomorrow night against the Tigers of Chilton High School. The Tigers, members of the Eastern Wisconsin conference, did not have a single win last season finishing last in the conference. Despite Chilton's record last season, Gibraltar Head Coach Justin Burress is excited about the matchup.

 



 

Having not played a team before can make it very difficult to prepare for a matchup. This isn't the case for Gibraltar according to Burress. They have a game plan and are going to focus on playing to their strengths. Coach Burress wants his team focus around defense.

 



 

The Gibraltar Vikings boys basketball team and the Chilton Tigers boys basketball team will tip off on Tuesday evening at 7:15 pm.

Packers Playoffs Hopes Dissipating After Loss In Washington


By Nick Freimuth




The Packers defense is so depleted that the "next man up" mentality just cannot get it done anymore. On Sunday Night Football, Washington exploited an inexperienced defensive secondary en route to a 42-24 victory.

Aaron Rodgers had a solid day statistically. He threw for 351 yards, three touchdowns and was the team's leading rusher with 33 yards. Jared Cook had a statement game tallying six receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown.

Wind was a big factor in Washington last night. It is certainly not an excuse as the Redskins played in the same conditions. The Packers tailspin has continued and now includes a four game losing streak. At (4-6) the playoffs are still a possibility but a lengthy winning streak will need to take place first.

The team next travels to Philadelphia on the 28th for Monday Night Football.

Wisconsin Badgers Football Team Tops Purdue 49-20


By David Meyer




The seventh-ranked Wisconsin Badgers scored thirty-five points in less than eight minutes of game clock and parlayed that scoring run into a 49-20 win over Purdue.  A pick-six from linebacker T.J. Watt helped spur Wisconsin (9-2) to a much-needed win over the Boilermakers (3-8).  Wisconsin used both Bart Houston and Alex Hornibrook at quarterback and Houston finished with 102 yards through the air.  Running back Corey Clement finished with 112 yards rushing.  The Badgers hope to move up in the rankings on Tuesday, as previously fifth-ranked Louisville lost to Houston earlier in the week.  The top four teams will make the College Football Playoff.

Gibraltar Blownout By Kewaunee In Packerland Conference Road Opener 56-19


By Brandon Enroth




The Gibraltar Vikings girls basketball team suffered their first big blowout loss of the season to the Kewaunee Storm on Friday night by a final score of 59-16. Kewaunee dominated on offense and defense from the opening tip led by senior guard Brook Geier who ended the game with 21 points. Gibraltar Head Coach Josh Krupenske reflected on how the team played tonight.

 



 

Gibraltar had severe problems adjusting their offense to the consistent defensive pressure that Kewaunee applied. The Storm jumped out to a 35-8 lead heading into half-time and never looked back. The bright spots on offense for Gibraltar included Peyton Pluff and Sheridan Ash who contributed four points each. Coach Krupenske then talked about what will have to change for them with Algoma coming to Gibraltar on Monday night.

 



 

The girls have a quick turn around as powerhouse Algoma comes to Gibraltar on Monday night for the home opener of the Vikings season. Tip-off will be at 7:30 pm.

Local Girls Basketball Results 11/18


By David Meyer




There were three local girls basketball games on Friday evening that all ended up being one-sided contests.  Algoma notched a win at home over Sevastopol 66-26, they were led in scoring by Mikayla Haack and Sierra Nessinger who each had 11 points.  Southern Door went on the road and topped Green Bay NEW Lutheran 78-36, Alexa Soto was the top scorer for the Eagles with 16 points.  And in a game that you heard on 105.1 WSBW, Kewaunee dispatched of Gibraltar 56-19.  Stay tuned for a game recap from Gibraltar play-by-play man Brandon Enroth.

Gibraltar Girls Basketball Takes On Kewaunee Storm In Packerland Conference Opener


By Brandon Enroth




The Gibraltar girls basketball team travels to Kewaunee tonight for the first Packerland Conference match-up of the season. In two match-ups last season, Kewaunee won both contests 55-27 and 53-50, respectively. Gibraltar Head Coach Josh Kruprenske talks about his three keys to the game.

 



 

While Gibraltar was in action on Tuesday against Brillion, Kewaunee has yet to play a regular-season game this season. It will be interesting to see how Gibraltar responds in this game given last year's results. Kruprenske reflects on last year's matchups and what his hopes are for this year.

 



 

The game will be broadcasted on 105.1 More FM with Brandon Enroth as play-by-play commentator, and Brandon Stillman as color commentator. The Piggily Wiggily of Sister Bay pre-game show will begin at 7:00 pm, followed by tip-off at 7:30 pm.

 

 

 

 

Ask The Warden On WRLU – Your Questions & Answers

Sevastopol Pioneers Girls Basketball '16-'17 Preview


By Brandon Enroth




After a rough ending to the 2015 basketball season, Head Coach Dan Judas believes that this year will be much different. Following a 0-14 season within the Packerland Conference, the Sevastopol Pioneers Girls Basketball team hopes to improve in several key areas of the game. Judas says that the primary concern is controlling the turnovers.

 



 

Entering this year, Judas has a strong core of four seniors whose leadership, work ethic, and dedication to the game has in his mind made this team a close unit. Patty Estrada, Anna Giblin, Olivia Wagner, and Jessica Emerick have played under Judas since he took over the head coaching duties almost three years ago, and according to their coach they want to make their last season memorable.

 



 

The team has a tough start to their season, as they travel to Algoma on November 18th and then return home to face Green Bay New Lutheran on November 22nd.

Packers Travel To Washington To Break Losing Streak


By Green Bay Packers




The Packers are (1-1) on Sunday Night Football this season. A loss to Minnesota in Week 1 and a win against the Giants at home in Week 5 make Week 11's matchup with the Redskins the equalizer. Dating back to 1990, the Packers are (24-10) in Sunday night games during the regular season, including (12-8) under Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

Under Coach Mike McCarthy, Green Bay is (83-42-1) during the regular season against NFC opponents. The Packers' 83 wins and .663 winning percentage both rank No. 1 among NFC teams over that span. Green Bay is (35-27) on the road against NFC teams since 2006, a .565 winning percentage that ranks No. 2 in the NFC, trailing only the Dallas Cowboys (37-26, .587).

The Packers have scored 23 or more points in six of the last seven games. Dating back to Week 3, they are tied for the third-most 23-plus point games in the NFL, trailing only Atlanta and Dallas who each have seven (according to pro-football-reference.com).

The Packers are playing three road games in a row for the first time since 2012 and only the third time in the last 19 seasons (also 1998). Green Bay will next travel to Philadelphia to play the Eagles on Monday Night Football. It is the last of five primetime games that were scheduled for Green Bay this season. The Packers were (2-1) in their first three primetime games this season.

(KRIS-tin) Michael, a 5-foot-10, 220-pound, fourth-year player out of Texas A&M, was originally selected by the Seahawks in the second round (62nd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Donald Driver Going Into Packers Hall Of Fame


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. announced today that it will induct former Packers players Donald Driver and Mark Lee at the 47th Hall of Fame Induction Banquet, to be held Saturday, July 22, 2017, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

 

Donald Driver, selected in the seventh round of the 1999 NFL Draft, played in 205 games during his 14-year Packers career, the second-most in franchise history behind only quarterback Brett Favre. He is the Packers' all-time leader for receptions, with 743, and receiving yards, with 10,137, and also scored 62 career touchdowns, tied for fifth-most in team annals. Over his career, Driver cultivated a reputation as one of the most productive wide receivers in Packers history, with 133 consecutive games with a reception and nine consecutive seasons with 50 or more receptions. A four-time Pro Bowl selection (2002, '06, '07, '10), Driver's veteran leadership also helped guide the 2010 Packers to a Super Bowl XLV victory.

 

Mark Lee, who played 11 seasons in Green Bay (1980-90), was a model of consistency during his career, whether it was in pass coverage as one of the league's best bump-and-run corners or as a hard-nosed tackler in run support. He intercepted 31 passes during his career, which ranks second all-time among Packers cornerbacks and eighth overall, and added 104 passes defensed, as well as nine forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries. A durable performer, he missed only eight games during his Packers career, appearing in 157 contests with 139 starts. Lee also led the Packers in kickoff returns his first two seasons and in punt returns in 1981 when he averaged 9.4 yards and ranked 11th in the league. Additionally, he had an interception return for a touchdown at Dallas in the 1982 playoffs.

 

Information about tickets for the banquet, which begins with a cash bar at 4:30 p.m., with dinner and program to follow at 7 p.m., is still being finalized and will be released in the near future (www.packershalloffame.com). The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. Golf Classic is set for Monday, July 10, 2017, at The Bull in Sheboygan Falls, Wis.

 

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is a nonprofit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers that guides the Hall as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin. The Hall raises funds through its annual induction banquet, Golf Classic and other events to preserve the history of the Green Bay Packers and expand its archives. Historic memorabilia donated by individuals to the Hall may qualify as tax-deductible gifts.

 

Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Packers Hall of Fame moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field. In 2003, it was relocated to the lower level of the Lambeau Field Atrium, and it was closed in November 2013 for renovations. The Packers Hall of Fame reopened in August of 2015, and is now located on the main floor of the Atrium across from 1919 Kitchen & Tap. Groups interested in booking tours and those seeking additional information may visit the Hall online atpackers.com/lambeau-field/hall-of-fame/visit.html.

Packers Struggles Are Real At (4-5)


By Nick Freimuth




Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers accounted for 398 yards of total offense and Green Bay still lost to the Titans Sunday 45-27. After falling behind 21-0 in the first quarter the team never recovered. It marked the biggest first quarter deficit the tam faced since 1986.

Injury was again added to insult as the team lost Jake Ryan, TJ Lang and David Bakhtiari yesterday. The team is still without Clay Matthews services on defense as well.

Jordy Nelson had a tremendous statistical performance snagging 12 balls for 126 yards and a touchdown. Davante Adams keeps trending upwards as well. He finished with six catches for 156 yards.

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was just shy of 300 yards passing and four touchdowns. The Packers made him look a little more like Tom Brady and a little less Mariota-like. DeMarco Murray added 123 rushing yards including a 75-yard touchdown on the Titans first offensive play of the game.

Green Bay is back on the road next Sunday when they play the Washington Redskins on Sunday Night Football.

Get Packers Autographs While Raising Money For Salvation Army


By Nick Freimuth




Green Bay Packers players will again be supporting the Salvation Army this holiday season by signing autographs for fans in exchange for monetary donations.

 

This year, the players will be signing autographs for visitors to the Lambeau Field Atrium on Monday evenings during the holiday season. To help the Salvation Army reach its donation goals for 2016, fans are asked to donate a minimum of $20.

 

Additionally, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has pledged to match each donation made during the autograph signings, which will double the amount the Salvation Army receives during the five signing events.

 

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign is an important holiday tradition in the Green Bay community, as many of the organization's programs operate only because of the money received through Red Kettle donations. All proceeds raised go towards aiding needy families, seniors and the homeless in Green Bay.

 

The names of the players participating in each signing will be announced the Tuesday prior to each event. The schedule is as follows:

 

Nov. 14, at 6 p.m.: Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan

Nov. 21, at 6 p.m.: TBA

The track formerly known as Thunderhill Raceway in Sturgeon Bay will not stay dark for much longer. A new management/ownership group, PKS3, has reached an agreement with the county to bring racing back to the 1/3 mile clay oval next summer.

PKS3 members Melanie Sargent and Martin Kelsey were in studio this week to share the big news from the county board. Sargent said, "We were told to move ahead and start making plans for the 2017 season. We will have a full race season including Friday through Sunday options and a possibility of racing on the opening night (Wednesday) of the Door County Fair."

The Hill will be known as a drivers track with a tremendous focus on the fans in the grand stand.

Kelsey added, "We are so excited for this opportunity. Racing is important to a lot of people in Door County and we are proud to keep a strong tradition alive. We've got one of the best facilities for local racing period. The fact that we are able to keep racing alive in Door County is exciting. It brings in a lot of money to the county and we couldn't be more excited."

The Hill Raceway will undergo some changes. The raceway will no longer be sanctioned by IMCA, something PKS3 member John Sternard says will give everyone more flexibility. "We have heard nothing but positive from this decision," according to Sternard.

The Hill will run four classes, including  Sport Mods, Stock Cars, Street Stocks and Enduro.

The county has resurfaced the track with 25 loads of clay this fall which will provide a great racing surface to get started. Kelsey added, "A special thank you to John White for putting in the hard work and open line of communication with our group to ensure optimal track conditions."

"You never know what you're going to get when you come to The Hill. We want to make it that it is entertaining to come and watch; not just that you are watching a bunch of cars drive in circles." Sargent said.

The promotional team is contemplating a modified series called the Modified Madness Series featuring the fastest cars on the track. These cars hit 600 horsepower in a 2,500 pound car.

Other new features at The Hill in 2017 include:

- A Kids Club – A program that will get the kids actively involved including 10-and under free and fun activities and giveaways for youth every week. Kids will get to sit in cars set up under the grand stand throughout the race, hop inside and experience the feel of racing first hand.

- 14 and under – discounted rates for pit passes with a paid adult (legal guardian)

- Fan interaction with announcers and drivers.

- Exciting sponsor oriented announcing.

- Electronic Pay At The Gate -

Racing at The Hill is set to run between Memorial Day and Labor Day on Friday and Saturday nights and a few Sunday matinees mixed in. Questions can be directed to their FaceBook Page, The Hill Raceway.

One of the most important factors upon which Coach Mike McCarthy grades his players is availability. This season availability has been a major issue.

By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers signed safety Jermaine Whitehead to the practice squad. The transaction was announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

He spent most of his rookie season on the 49ers' practice squad before being signed to the Baltimore Ravens' active roster on Dec. 23, 2015, where he was inactive for the final two games of the season. After being released by the Ravens on May 13, he signed with Green Bay on May 18, was released on Sept. 3, spent the first seven weeks of the season on the Packers' practice squad, was signed to the active roster on Oct. 24, played in two games and was released on Nov. 7.

Packers & Titans Marred In Mediocrity So Far This Season

[singleImage image="11188" img_size="full" img_width="0" img_height="0" img_link_target="_self" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]

By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers (4-4) begin a three-game road trip with a visit to Tennessee to play the Titans (4-5) Sunday at noon. Green Bay is playing three road games in a row for the first time since 2012 and only the third time in the last 19 seasons.

Sunday will be Green Bay's third regular-season visit to Tennessee. The previous two regular-season matchups at the Titans were decided by six and three points. The Packers trail in the overall series with the Titans, (5-6), but won the last meeting, 55-7, in 2012 at Lambeau Field.

The team reportedly brought in three different running backs Tuesday for try-out. Rumors have also surfaced the Addie Lacy is likely done for the year and the likelihood of a week 15 return off injured reserve may be a long shot.

The Gibraltar High School Girls Basketball team is coming off the program's best year it its history. Coming into this season, head coach Josh Kroupenske is attempting to fill some vacancies left by the departure of five seniors from last year's squad.

 



 

Luckily for Kropuenske, he's got a strong cast of returning players who are ready to step up and carry the momentum over from last year's 17-win season.

 



 

The Gibraltar Girls Basketball team begins their season on November 15th against Brillion on the road.

Packers Never Led Against Colts At Home

The Packers got off to the worst possible start in an NFL game Sunday. A devastating 31-26 loss at Lambeau Field has fans scratching their heads Monday morning. Colts return man Jordan Todman returned the opening kickoff 99 to give the visitors a quick 7-0 lead. Andrew Luck threw a pair of interceptions and finished 23/36 for 281 yards and one touchdown. He led the Colts to a crowd silencing effort and quite possibly saved the head coach Chuck Pagano's job for the time being.

 

Luck Gore

 

Aaron Rodgers finished 26/43 for 297 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception. His top target was Jordy Nelson. He managed seven receptions for 94 yards and one touchdown. Richard Rodgers tallied six receptions and Davante Adams added four catches in the loss.

Ty Montgomery was Green Bay's top rusher. He carried the ball seven times for 53 yards. The loss coupled with a Minnesota Vikings loss to Detroit has the Lions and Packers a game behind the Vikings in the NFC North.

Door County Deer Advisory Councilmember Concerned With Harvest Rates

According to Dick Baudhuin, a member of the Conservation Congress and Door County Deer Advisory Council member, deer harvesting in 2016 is off to a slow start.

 

Baudhuin sites the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources latest release on the deer harvest as his cause for concern. "Up to October 25, 2016, the Door County deer harvest is at 375. Last year over the same period 451 deer were harvested in Door County. That is a 17% decrease," Baudhuin said.

 

The Door County Deer Advisory Council member continued, "This is alarming! The past three years the Door County Deer Advisory Council voted unanimously to recommend reducing the deer herd. Earn a Buck is no longer an option, so the next best option is an antlerless season. So if hunters don't like that idea, I think they should start using the three free antlerless tags they get with each permit. (Three with gun and three with bow for a total of six.)"

 

Baudhuin recommends harvesting venison for local food pantries, friends and neighbors if your freezers are full. Your response to Baudhuin's concerns is welcome. Please respond in the comment section below.

In a hard fought battle that lived up to all the billing, a spirited Luxemburg-Casco Spartan comeback bid fell short in a 21-10 loss to The Notre Dame Tritons in a Division 3 Level 3 Football Game Friday night in Green Bay.

The Spartans fell behind 7-0 to the Tritons in the second quarter on a 38 yard touchdown pass from Jonathon Santaga to Quinn Snyder.  L-C had thought they had scored a touchdown in the first quarter on a 90 yard run by quarterback Jon Deprey but the play was called back on a controversial illegal block in the back penalty.

The Tritons came out of halftime and scored on another touchdown pass to take a 14-0 lead, before the Spartans scored ten straight points to pull within 4 points.  Austin Tlachac scored on a 15 yard run in the third quarter and Samuel Larson kicked a 28 yard field goal with 8:37 left in the fourth quarter.

The Triton then put the game away with a long five minute drive capped by a two yard touchdown run by Nate Ihlenfeldt on a fourth-and-goal with 3:19 left in the game.

The Spartans were led in rushing by Deprey who finished with 92 on 20 carries.  Dalton Smerchek led the L-C defense with 10 tackles.  Luxemburg-Casco finished a memorable and successful season 11-1 while Notre Dame (11-1) will now play Rice Lake in a State Semi-final playoff next week.

Injuries Seem Contagious For Packers & Colts

Eddie Lacy and Sam Shields are two of the nearly one dozen Green Bay Packers on injured reserve this season. Those two may be the players that receive the "designated to return" status and are able to make it back onto the field at the end of the season. Others like Jared Abbrederis, Chris Banjo, John Crockett, Kennard Backman, Josh Walker, Jacob Flores, and Mitchell Henry were placed on IR and released from the team after an injury settlement.

 

An additional ten players appear on this week's injury report for Green Bay. Indianapolis has 13 players listed on their report. Following practice Wednesday the Packers and Colts each released their team's first list of walking wounded of the week. Here is what each team has shared:

The Green Bay Packers signed running back Brandon Burks to the practice squad. The transaction was announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

 

Burks, a 5-foot-9, 208-pound rookie out of Troy, originally signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent on May 9, but was released on Sept. 5. In college, he became just the third player in school history to lead the Trojans in rushing in three different seasons. He recorded 1,005 rushing yards as a senior, becoming just the eighth 1,000-yard rusher in Troy history. Burks was named All-Sun Belt honorable mention as both a junior and senior. He will wear No. 30 for Green Bay.

The Green Bay Packers return home to host the Indianapolis Colts at Lambeau Field this Sunday for a 3:25 PM kickoff. Sunday will be the Colts' first trip to Green Bay since 2008. Five of the last seven matchups between Green Bay and Indianapolis have been decided by seven or fewer points.

The Packers have won three consecutive home games against Indianapolis. The Colts last win at Lambeau Field came in 1988. The overall series between the Packers and Colts is tied at 21-21-1, including one postseason contest.

The combined point differential in the series is 25 points in favor of the Colts. Sunday will be the fifth time in the last six matchups that the Packers will host the Colts in the month of November.

Green Bay is (4-3) and a game back on Minnesota in the NFC North. The Colts are (3-5) and two games behind the Houston Texans in the AFC South.

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers varsity soccer program was honored as the WRLU Team of the Week Monday night at Jim Olson Motors GM location. The Clippers won their eighth straight regional championship before losing 3-1 to Winnebago Lutheran last Thursday. Coaches Todd Maas and Jeff Schaefer and the entire varsity team had an opportunity to be recognized for another great season live on 104.1 FM WRLU.

In the second portion of the program, two Green Bay Packers players helped honor the Clippers. Brett Hundley and Don Jackson gave the high school student athletes words of wisdom and encouragement.

The players stayed until everyone in attendance got an autograph, got a picture or answered their question. It is free and the Red Zone is open to anyone and everyone. Next Monday the show returns to the Chrysler Store when we will honor the seventh and eighth grade Sturgeon Bay Volleyball teams. The show runs between 5:30 and 7:00 PM.
