Football season is just 41 days away and the Packers are already hard at work at the first day of training camp. Before the players take the field, they have to take part in a little tradition and that would be the daily bike ride to practice. Rookies like Quinten Rollins are getting their first taste of the Green Bay tradition. Rollins teamed up with young fan Raymond Beech for a ride to practice.

"At the end of the day, we're more than athletes. So, being able to put a smile on Raymond's face and his mother's face was a thrill."

Raymond's mother, Sarah Forrester, said the entire experience was a thrill.

"We didn't just become Packers fans, but we really just started following them in the last five years. It's an awesome tradition. We got to sit right in the stadium. They had handicap seating, which is awesome."

The tradition and training camp will continue right up until the season opener on Sept. 13 in Chicago.
