"Architect of a Dynasty" honored in Packerland

Posted: Updated:

ASHWAUBENON (WKOW) -- An unsung hero of the great Green Bay Packers teams under Vince Lombardi got some well-deserved recognition Wednesday.

Jack Vainisi was the team's talent scout in the early 1960's and recruited most of the  stars who went on to win five straight championships in that decade.

Now, Vainisi's name has been added to the Packers' Walk of Legends.

Though he recruited seven hall of famers, Vainisi never got to see them bring home the championships, he died in his 30's from rheumatic fever.
