Mayfield Sports, Wisconsin Rapids Rafters, and Solarus bring Packer Alumni Nick Collins to Central Wisconsin
Looming storms, heat and humidity didn’t stop Green Bay Packer fans from coming out to meet Super Bowl XLV Champion Nick Collins last night as the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters hosted the Kenosha Kingfish.
While fans knew of his football greatness, many were surprised when he shared baseball was actually his first passion, even being drafted by the Atlanta Braves out of high school. Needing to focus on one sport while attending Bethune-Cookman, Collins thankfully choose football, being drafted by the Packers in 2005 in the second round of the draft.
During his seven seasons with Green Bay Collins played in three Pro Bowls, was a three-time Second-Team All-Pro, NFC Interception co-leader in 2008, NFL interception return yards leader in 2008, and Super Bowl XLV champion. In 2016, Collins efforts and accomplishments with the Packers were further recognized as he was inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
Currently residing with his family in Florida, Collins is available for motivational speaking, autograph sessions, player appearances, and endorsement opportunities.
