Packer, Rockford Native Dean Lowry Takes Time Out With Local Kids

Sports

Former Boylan High School standout and now Green Bay Packer Dean Lowry was on hand for this year’s Rockford Football Training Camp.

He and former Chicago Bear Alex Brown were guest instructors in the Indoor Sports Center at MercyHealth Sportscore Two. The camp involves kids of all ages participating in drills with local high school coaches like Auburn’s Dan Appino, and Guilford’s Bruce Bazsali.

Lowry thinks it’s his responsibility to get involved in the community now that he is a professional athlete, and public figure.

“It’s great to be back here in Rockford,” says Lowry. ‘I was one of these kids 10 years ago just playing football, playing sports, and to have big dreams is pretty cool. I think it’s all great to develop teamwork, discipline, and commitment skills and I think today’s event really demonstrates that.”
