It was unveiled recently by Lambeau's grandson, John Lambeau. It reads: "Earl Louis `Curly' Lambeau founded the Green Bay Packers in 1919."

They're simple words, but the Lambeau family hopes the plaque reminds current teens of their potential. John Lambeau says his grandfather just wanted to play football, and he made it happen.

Another early Packer is also being recognized. A plaque in honor of Arnie Herber is being installed across town at West High School -- East High's rival for more than 100 years.
