Kid Brings A.J. Hawk to Show-and-Tell
Next game: Sunday, December 7th vs. Houston
APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- An 8-year-old Appleton boy had the ultimate show-and-tell for his third-grade class and the rest of McKinley Elementary School.
Sam Arnoldussen arrived at school Tuesday in a stretch limo and brought his new friend -- Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk.
Arnoldussen was the winner in the Packers market for the NFL Take a Player to School sweepstakes. When approached by the Packers, Hawk jumped at the chance to take part in the sweepstakes, saying he could barely look at adults when he was a little kid and wanted to make it fun for the winner.
Sam's mother, Jill Arnoldussen, says it's something her son will never forget.
