Antigo man wins autographed, game-worn Packers helmet
ANTIGO - Packer players don't make it to the Northwoods very often, but a state tour for charity brought six retired Packer greats to Langlade County Saturday. Hundreds of people shook hands and got autographs from Aaron Kampman, Nick Barnett and more. And one very lucky Antigo man had a day he'll never forget.

Scott Dorn didn't expect to win anything; he was just excited to meet his heroes.

"All his life he's been a Packer fan, he loves the Packers," said Dorn's friend Deborah Thom. 

Dorn attended the Packers VIP party benefitting Langlade County Habitat for Humanity. He, along with everyone else, put his name in a hat for a grand prize drawing. 


Langlade County Habitat for Humanity boardmember Kellen Lewis said a few years ago Dorn got a new house courtesy of Habitat for Humanity.

"We built a house that's totally handicap-accessible for him, and then we draw out of everyone that's here, and it ends up being him that wins," said Lewis. "It was really just a special moment."

He won a game-worn helmet, autographed by green and gold legends.

Dorn met some of his favorite former players too, such as two-time pro bowler Aaron Kampman.

"These last five days have been a great opportunity to engage with the people of Wisconsin," said Kampman.

The former defensive end said he's humbled to support Langlade County Habitat for Humanity.

"All the proceeds that we've raised, the Packers aren't taking anything here," said Kampman. "They're just being able to help the causes of the local communities."

Dorn and Thom have one message for the Green Bay Packers. 

"This is super awesome, so thank you for everything," said Thom. "We so appreciate it."
