Following in his father’s footsteps, 11-year-old Tyler Perkins is an avid Green Bay Packers fan… with a great admiration for the team’s legendary quarterback, Brett Favre. Tyler’s father died when he was just 3 years old, but left him with an old Green Bay jacket and a deep love for the Packers.
Recently Perkins got a chance to meet Brett Favre on the football star’s visit to the College of William and Mary here in Williamsburg. The chance to meet Brett Favre was a dream come true for Tyler… and getting his father’s jacket signed was a dream come true for his family.
Local media were there to capture the significant event.
