MILWAUKEE -- Some of Wisconsin's youngest football fans showed their support of the Green Bay Packers with their own rally in Milwaukee Friday. In fact, 80,000 kids in Milwaukee Public Schools were encouraged to "Back the Pack."

Students and staff at Honey Creek School on Milwaukee's southwest side got decked out in green and gold. They were sporting jerseys of Greg Jennings, Clay Matthews and of couse, Aaron Rodgers.

"We're big on supporting the teams from Wisconsin, teams from Milwaukee, we've always done that. So the children came in all excited," said Gitanjail Chawla, Honey Creek School Principal.

Students throughout the district also learned some important lessons on "Back the Pack" day. Among the most important -- that without teamwork and a positive attitude, there isn't a winning outcome.
