GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay Packers star running back got a unique fan letter that included a special gift that was once used at Carnegie Hall following the team’s win over Minnesota.
AJ Dillon shared a picture of the gift with the attached letter on his Twitter account on Friday.
The gift? A baton that was used at Carnegie Hall by Glenn C. Hayes, the Director of Bands at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
The letter is in reference to Dillon’s 4th quarter touchdown celebration against the Vikings on January 1, where Dillon conducted the offense in a musical performance.
Please accept the enclosed as a gift from one conductor to another…After watching you conduct after your recent touchdown, I thought you might need a baton as conducting with a football must be awkward. This baton has allowed me to conduct in the most famous music performance site in the world. I pray it leads you to the most famous football game in the world.Glenn C. Hayes, Director of Bands at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
“Best fans in football!” responded Dillon in his tweet.
Now it is up to Dillon and the Packers to hopefully conduct a world-class playoff run.
