2014 Training Camp — Part III
Still getting caught up here, as these are from last Monday. Early in the morning, the gates of Ray Nitschke Field await the entrance of hundreds of fans.
Kids wait with their bikes in the “DreamZone” for the players to begin their trek to the practice field.
American Family Insurance, who sponsors the “DreamZone,” provides a few of these bikes for the ritual.
Players and kids head towards the practice field.

T Bryan Bulaga
WR Randall Cobb
RB Eddie Lacy
WR Jordy Nelson, who requires a full sprint to keep up with him.
