Pack Attack Week 19: BJ Coleman


WESTON (WAOW) - With the Green Bay Packers' loss to the San Francisco 49ers, week 19 will be our last Pack Attack show.

This week we're joined by a man who trained with Brett Favre, has the mechanics of Peyton Manning and is learning from Aaron Rodgers. Quarterback BJ Coleman will join us Monday, along with Johnnie Gray, at Dale's Weston Lanes. The show airs on Tuesday.

When the Packers drafted Coleman he told reporters he worked out with Favre because they have the same agent.

Coleman started his college career at Tennessee, just like Manning, then transferred to Tennessee-Chattanooga. It was there that his offensive coordinator saw similarities to how Coleman studied film, went through pre-snap looks and dropped into a Manning-like dropback.

Another Packers connection, he was the Reggie White Player of the Year in Tennessee following his senior year of high school.

This is more information from his bio:

  • Finished his career at Chattanooga ranked either first or second in every major statistical passing category in school history after he started 29 games over three seasons and threw for 6,871 yards and 52 TDs on 579-of-1,008 passing (57.4 percent).
  • Improved his draft stock with a solid performance at the 2012 East-West Shrine Game, where he completed 10-of-15 passes for 170 yards and a TD as a member of the East squad. 
  • Father, Bryon Sr., was an offensive lineman at Chattanooga from 1977-80, and his brother, Jarrod, was a tight end and a teammate of his during his recent three-year stint at the school.
Join Sports Director Lauren Magiera, Bryon Graff, BJ Coleman and Johnnie Gray at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Dale's Weston Lanes. You can also watch it Tuesday night at 6:30 on Newsline 9.
