Packers worker has possible 'lucky beard'

Posted: Updated:

TOWN OF MAINE (WKOW) -- A Marathon County man may have the secret to the Packers' success this year -- on his face.

You may have seen quarterback Aaron Rodgers tug Jeremy Wilcox's beard before he went back on the field in yesterday's game against the Lions. Wilcox has helped with gameday communications at Lambeau Field all season, but he says he was surprised at the MVP's move.

"I never would have thought that I'd have been in this position," said Jeremy Wilcox, a Packers employee. "One of the most famous people in Wisconsin comes over to you, starts talking to you, yanking on your beard. It's almost unbelievable."

Wilcox says Rodgers has given his beard a tug since players noticed it at the beginning of the season. He's been growing it out for the past two years - it's now about 10 inches long.
