Packers Select Montravius Adams With Third Round Draft Pick


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers added their third and final draft pick of night two of the NFL Draft by selecting nose tackle Montravius Adams from University of Auburn with the 93rd overall selection. Packers outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott announced the pick from the NFL Draft in Philadelphia.

 

Adams was a second team all-American with 44 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 2016. He started every game the last two years. The Auburn senior is from Vienna, Georgia.

 

The Packers will be equipped with six picks on the third and final day of the 2017 NFL Draft. Green Bay has two picks in the fourth and fifth rounds and one in the sixth and seventh rounds.

 

Packers General Manager Ted Thompson took questions from local media and talked about his draft philosophies and much more.

 

On the newest additions to the Green Bay Packers:

"Speed, size athletic ability. We feel like all three have that ability. I think we are always trying to get faster. Football is about explosiveness, speed and athletic ability. This is not our grandfathers football that we're playing these days."

 

On Montravius Adams:
"He's got the versatility to move around )on the defensive line). I want to say he ran a :04.8 (in the 40 yard dash)."

 

On moving back in the draft:
"There's always that risk that the player you're targeting could be gone by the time it gets back to you."

 

On His pension for drafting for defense early:

"We're trying to get better and we think we have a better chance to get better with these three guys."

 

Montravius Adams also took questions from local media. He was excited to be a Packers draft pick.

 

On becoming a father tonight:

"It is just a lot of blessings. Just meeting my son and then the Packers calling me. I'm just thankful for the blessing."

Packers Draft Josh Jones With Second Pick


By Nick Freimuth




The Packers stayed on the defensive with their second selection of the second round of the NFL Draft Friday night. With the 61st overall pick Josh Jones out of North Carolina State University will help bolster a defensive secondary that was torched in the NFC Championship by Julio Jones and the Atlanta Falcons. It marks the second time in three years that Green Bay addressed their defensive backfield with their first two picks. It now is just a matter of time to see which class will outshine the other.

 

Jones has good size at 6'1" and 215 pounds. As a red shirt junior he was named honorable mention in the ACC. He ranked ninth in tackles and 11th in passes defensed in the conference. Many scouting reports immediately mentioned Jones' versatility. He was also durable as he started all 13 games for the Wolf Pack in 2016. His :04.4 time in the 40-yard dash proves he is fast enough to play in the NFL.

 

Green Bay Packers Director of College Scouting Brian Gutenkust addressed the media after the pick. He said, "He (Jones) is really versatile, has shown great speed and we are excited." Gutenkust said the team's  plan was to get bigger and faster in the secondary and this pick addressed that need.

 

"We don't put a lot of expectations on them (rookies) to come  in and play right away but we have high expectations." Gutenkust said his coverage ability and tackling prowess impressed him on the tape.

 

The Packers Director of College Scouting could not stop bragging about Josh Jones' versatility. It seems that this pick addresses the void Micah Hyde left in the Packers secondary. Hyde was kind of a jack of all trades and Jones could turn into the same kind of NFL player.

 

Josh Jones answered questions from local media and responded to a number of questions:

 

On what it was like to hear his name called:
"Oh My! I just dropped to my knees and thanked the Lord!"

 

On what's next:
"I promise my best football is ahead of me." "I want to get coached up and learn from Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. He is a proven player. I respect his game a whole lot. I am excited to be able to play with a guy like that."

Packers Draft Defensive Back Kevin King


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers made their first pick in the 2017 NFL Draft at 6:18 PM Friday night and it was a pick that fit Ted Thompson's method of operations. After trading their first round pick Thursday night at number 29, the Green Bay Packers had the first pick in the second round with the 33rd overall selection.

 

A defensive back out of the University of Washington Kevin King was the first player added this year t the Packers roster. The 6'3" defensive back weighs in at 192 pounds and will likely be expected to make an immediate impact for the Packers in 2017. King boasts a :04.43 - 40 yard dash time that should allow him to play 'press' or 'bump and run' coverage and recover if a wide receiver gets a good release at the line of scrimmage.

 

Many scouting  reports commented on  Kevin King's character. The term "Packers People" is something that is seemingly taken very serious inside 1265 Lombardi Avenue.

 

Packers Director of Football Operations Elliot Wolf addressed the media following the pick and said, "Kevin was the guy we didn't want to lose." He added, "We love his versatility. He was a starting safety his sophomore season and played a lot in the slot his junior year."

 

It marks the return to the Pac 12 for the Packers for Green Bay's first defensive draft pick. Kenny Clark, Damarious Randall, Datone Jones, Nick Perry and now King mean five out of the last six of Green Bay first picks were selected from the Pac 12.

 

Elliot Wolf smiled throughout his press conference inside Lambeau Field. "I think we got the tallest corner in the draft and he's really fast. We are excited about this pick. I think he has the number one short shuttle and number one three-cone drill (times)."

 

Best player available and drafting for a position of need seemingly occurred with the Packers first pick of the draft. Kevin King will hopefully be an impact player for years to come for the green and gold

 

King talked with local media via conference call and had some interesting comments:

 

On whether  he feels any extra pressure knowing the Packers have a major need at his position:

"No, Wherever I was going to be drafted I know I was going to come in and compete. I'm ready to come in and compete."

 

On which current Green Bay Packers player he is most excited to meet:

"Aaron Rodgers he is a future Hall of Famer and a true pro. I'm really excited to meet him and all the guys on the team."

 

On how he came up:

"It wasn't too bad. I was blessed to have a two-parent home. My parents did a good job trying to keep me away from all the BS that happens in a big city. I have two brothers and one sister and we are very close. I think I am on course for what I do (because of them)."

 

Bucks Season Ends After Game Six With Raptors


By Nick Freimuth




With 3.5 seconds left on the clock and Milwaukee trailing by three points NBA All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo dunked the basketball. Trailing by one, the Bucks fouled, Toronto sunk both free throws, and then turned the ball over on the inbound. Toronto eliminated Milwaukee 92-89 in game six of the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

 

Antetokounmpo scored 34 points, his career playoff high, and snared nine rebounds. Khris Middleton tallied 19 points and Matthew Dellavedova added 12 in the loss.

Packers Trade First Round Pick To The Browns


By Nick Freimuth




Packers General Manager Ted Thompson has long been known as a wheeler and a dealer and he lived up to that again last night. Green Bay's first round draft pick was traded to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for two picks. Thompson elected to send the Brows the 29th overall selection for the 33rd and 108th picks.

 

It marked the third pick in the first round of the night for Cleveland. It was the third time in Packers history they did not have a pick in the first time (1975, 1986, 2008).

 

Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 30th overall pick. Many Packers fans hoped Green Bay would pick him at #29. Watt and his older brother J.J. became the eighth pair of brothers since 1990 to be selected in the first round of their respective NFL Drafts.

Bucks Blow Out Raptors In Game Three

The Packers' Week 8 bye, the latest bye week for Green Bay since 2014 (Week 9), is sandwiched by two home games. In Week 7, the New Orleans Saints visit Lambeau, their latest trip by date to Wisconsin since playing the Packers in Milwaukee on Nov. 17, 1985. Green Bay returns from the bye week to host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, marking the third time the two teams have met on MNF and the first since 1972. In Week 10, Green Bay will face the Bears in Chicago, a place they have won in the regular season each of the last six years.

 

For three of the following four games, the Packers will face teams from the AFC North. After welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to Lambeau Field for just the fourth time, they will travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers in a Sunday night matchup. After stopping back in Green Bay to play Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers' first December trip to Lambeau since 2000, the Packers will begin a stretch of three road games in four weeks with a trip to Cleveland. It is the first time since 2009 that Green Bay will finish the regular season with three of the final four games taking place on the road.

 

The Packers will finish their slate against the NFC South when they play at the Carolina Panthers in Week 15. For the second consecutive season, Green Bay will host the Vikings on a Saturday in Week 16. The Packers have won their last five regular-season games played on Saturdays.

 

Green Bay will close out the regular season at Detroit for the second consecutive year, marking the first time it has finished the regular season on the road against the same team in back-to-back seasons since 1991-92 (Minnesota).

 

This will be the first regular season that has the Packers playing home games on a Saturday, Thursday and Monday. Green Bay's schedule includes six games against 2016 playoff teams. Two of those contests (Detroit, Seattle) will be at Lambeau Field, while four (Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Pittsburgh) will come on the road. The Packers will play two teams (Atlanta, Dallas) that it played during the 2016 regular and postseason.

 

The dates and times for Green Bay's preseason games have also been finalized.

Tuesday's High School Sports Results


By Nick Freimuth




Gibraltar Baseball hung on for a 7-5 win over Sturgeon Bay Tuesday. Casey Weddig was 2x2 with a double and 2 RBIs, Ben Johnson was 2x2 with an RBI and Griffin Reinhardt was 2x3 with an RBI.  Connie Brennan had an RBI double. Brandon Emery-Janzen was Gibraltar's relief pitcher and struck out six. Jake Moeller and Jared VanBramer had multi-hit games for the Clippers. Tanner Degrave tallied two RBI in the loss.

 

Sevastopol Baseball and Softball lost last night. Jillie Jorns made her first ever appearance as starting pitcher for the Pioneers in a 6-0 loss to Oconto. Coleman shutout the boys 10-0.

 

Sturgeon Bay Girls Soccer tied Fox Valley Lutheran 1-1 at home Tuesday.  In the 29th minute Kylie Sturm scored unassisted on a defended ball dropping a long shot over the Clippers keeper.  In the 81st minute, Sturgeon Bay responded late on a beautiful header from Kenzie Blau on a corner kick from Charlie Pollock.  Shots on goal were tied at half at 13, but Sturgeon Bay had 17 in the second half and FVL had none (wind was a factor).  Coach Bob Desotelle said, "Solid goal keeper work by both goalies (McKenna Gibson SB and Alyssa Charron  FVL) and defenses kept this one close.  We challenged our team at half to keep focused and find a way to tie the game to give the Clippers a chance at victory and some determined play late offered the team a shot at winning.   Our good offensive effort fell a bit short, but the coaching staff is proud of the team's ability to score late in the match.  We can build on this moving forward."

A.J. Hawk Retires With The Packers


By Green Bay Packers




Former linebacker A.J. Hawk, who played nine seasons (2006-14) in Green Bay, has informed the club of his decision to retire with the Packers. The announcement was made Tuesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

 

Hawk, who was drafted by Green Bay with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, ranks No. 1 in franchise history (since 1975) with 1,118 career tackles, having surpassed LB John Anderson's mark (1,020, 1978-89) in the 2013 regular-season finale. Hawk led the Packers in tackles five times during his career (2006, 2008, 2010, 2012-13), which is tied with LB Nick Barnett for the top mark in team history.

 

"The first thing that needs to be said about A.J. Hawk is that he is a good man," Thompson said. "He was a terrific teammate and a true professional during his career, and we were lucky to have him. A.J. will always be a Packer. We wish the best to him and the entire Hawk family, and thank them for all that they gave to the team and the city of Green Bay."

 

Hawk played in 142 of a possible 144 regular-season games with 136 starts in Green Bay, appearing in all 16 contests in eight of his nine seasons with the Packers. In addition to his 1,118 career tackles (798 solo), he registered 19 sacks, nine interceptions, 43 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries. In 2010, Hawk earned Pro Bowl recognition after tying for the NFL lead among linebackers with a career-high three interceptions and leading the team with 134 tackles. He helped Green Bay's defense finish in the top five in the league that season in points allowed (No. 2, 15.0 ppg) and yards allowed (No. 5, 309.1 ypg) as the Packers went on to win Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh.

 

Hawk led the team in tackles as a rookie in 2006 with a career-high 155 stops, the second most ever recorded by a Green Bay rookie (Rich Wingo, 166 in 1979). He finished third in NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year voting by The Associated Press and was named to the Pro Football Weekly/Pro Football Writers Association All-Rookie Team.

 

"We were fortunate to make A.J. my first pick as head coach in 2006, and he spent the next nine years giving everything he had to the Green Bay community and the Packers," Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. "His leadership and toughness were instrumental in all of our success, and we thank him for all that he did for the organization and the community. We wish A.J., Laura and the rest of the Hawk family all the best, and I am confident that whatever the future holds, he will be successful."

 

Hawk also played one season (2015) with the Cincinnati Bengals and appeared in one game for the Atlanta Falcons in 2016. His 158 games played from 2006-15 were the most among NFL linebackers over that span.

Door County Deer Advisory Council Decides Not To Recommend Anter-less Only Hunt


By Paul Schmitt




Over 200 Door County deer hunters showed up Monday and spoke out on the 2017 Antlerless-Only Seasons that was originally proposed for this fall. The Door County Deer Advisory Council decided against the measure after a public meeting at the Sturgeon Bay High School Commons. A 4-3 vote by the council Monday night reversed last month's unanimous recommendation. DNR Region Program Manager Jeff Pritzl says a lot has to be done to reduce the deer herd in the county to meet the desired quota.







Public comments prior to the decision ranged from bringing back the Earn-A-Buck to saying a doe-only hunt would force locals to hunt outside Door County to get a buck. The Wisconsin DNR will make a final decision on the recommendations made by the Door County Deer Advisory Council in May.  Door County would have been the only county in the state to have an antlerless hunt for all seasons. You can see the video of last night's meeting on DoorCountyDailyNews.com's facebook account.

Gibraltar Baseball Honors Fall Classmate During Special Season


By Tim Kowols




You do not have to tell the Gibraltar Secondary School's baseball team about the emotional weight they will be carrying this season. Bo Johnson, an avid baseball player, would have most likely been a senior on this year's team if it was not for the leukemia that took his life in 2012. With the acronym for You Only Live Once emblazoned on its outfield walls and the team caps colored in GO BO Foundation orange, head baseball coach Jay Kita knows this will be a special season regardless of the wins they collect.

 



 

Kita says the baseball team will host special events throughout the season to support the GO BO Foundation, which has raised thousands of dollars for cancer-related causes.

Luxemburg-Casco Shuts Out Sturgeon Bay Girls Soccer


By Bob Desotelle




On a very windy night, host Sturgeon Bay give up a goal in the 20th minute to Luxemburg-Casco's Liz Benson, which proved to be the game winner. A gusty north wind favored visiting L-C in the first half but the Clippers rallied in the second half with several hard shots the Spartan keeper defended. Luxemburg-Casco won the non-conference match up 1-0.

 

Sturgeon Bay Coach Bob DeMeuse said, "We play struggled early to connect passes and organize our attack, but defensively were able to repel numerous L-C attacks. Keeper Becca Osborne had nine saves to LC's six."

 

DeMeuse felt the Clippers built momentum throughout the game. "As the game progressed we gained momentum and eventually had the wind in our favor in the second half when our attacks were more organized and L-C had six saves in the second half. For the Clippers this was a decent first game against a quality D3 opponent. While we have a lot of work to do offensively, we have the players to accomplish the task and defensively we played well most of the game."

 

Next up for Sturgeon Bay, Lakeland Union at Notre Dame on Saturday. Conference play begins next week when Sturgeon Bay plays Valders and Kiel.

Brewers Close Out Spring With 5-4 Victory Over White Sox


By Tim Kowols




The Milwaukee Brewers won their final tune-up of the spring with a 5-4 victory over their American League neighbors to the south, the Chicago White Sox.

 

Just because it was an exhibition did not mean there was not drama in the see-saw affair. The Brewers' Jesus Aguilar and Kirk Nieuwenhuis knocked in go-ahead hits, only to be matched a half inning later by the White Sox. After the White Sox' Jose Abreu tied the game in the 7th inning with a home run, Brewers prospect Kyle Wren knocked in the game-winning run with an opposite field single.

 

The win gave the Brewers a record of 17-16-1 for the spring, a mark that will wiped clean in time for tomorrow's regular season home opener against the Colorado Rockies. First pitch is 1:10 p.m.
