Packers from the Past — Lavvie Dilweg

Since we’re in the early-mid part of the week with not a whole lot else going on, we’ll take the time to share some more of the Packers of the Past booklet from 1965. Today it’s a couple of pages on La Vern “Lavvie” Dilweg. And if you remember obscure trivia, his grandson Anthony played QB for Green Bay in the very early 90’s.

• Rookie QB B.J. Coleman feeling more confident
