Story profiles Packers legend (and former Phoenix trainer)

Tag icon ,

Nice story in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel about the legendary Carl “Bud” Jorgensen, Green Bay Packers team trainer from 1924 until 1970. Lot of good Glory Years tales, but the story also reminds us that Jorgensen returned to his passion for seven years on a part-time basis in 1972 when UW-Green Bay basketball coach Dave Buss asked him to become the head trainer for the Phoenix. Jorgensen died at age 78 in December 1982 in his Green Bay home. Just another example of Phoenix/Packers ties – read story.
