The Packers season is still two months away, but for residents of Iola, one game has been circled ever since the schedule came out in April
Green Bay welcomes Jacksonville on October 28. Iola native Austen Lane is in his third year with the Jaguars.
Growing up just over an hour from Green Bay, Lane says he was naturally a Packers fan but he's never stepped foot on Lambeau Field.
He says running onto that field for the first time ever will be a surreal experience.
"I'm excited," Lane said. "That stadium is part of my childhood. I went there for training camp and stuff all the time so i'm excited to play in it. It'll probably be humbling because i'm probably going to get booed a lot but it's going to be weird being in Wisconsin, everybody booing me, but hopefully i'll have some fans there with Jaguars jerseys on. Everyone's hitting me up with tickets. I don't think they understand I can't get tickets, especially at Lambeau Field where it's always sold out. I'm really excited, it's a game i've got circled on my calendar, for sure."
