Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Rob Reischel, author of a new book on Aaron Rodgers entitled, "Leader Of The Pack," is in Eau Claire, Wednesday evening.
Reischel, a writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Packers Plus, has covered the team for the past ten seasons, and has spent a lot of time with Rodgers since the QB joined the Packers in 2005.
About the book, Reischel says, "There's a lot of fun tips and fact in there about what Aaron went through in high school and in junior college just to play. There's a great story in the book about how Aaron, when he got to junior college, wore number four. Why? Because he loved Brett Favre. And we all know how that relationship went south so fast."
Reischel says in the time he's covered the Packers, he's never seen a player progress as far and as fast as Rodgers. According to Reischel, Rodgers has done that throughout his entire career.
"Aaron was a five-foot, two-inch, 130-pound freshman quarterback at his high school, and no one inside his high school thought he'd ever be the varsity quarterback, I think is a really unique story, things like that, through the book, that kind of take you back to the whole theme and premise of Aaron overcoming obstacles, and kind of beating the odds, every step of the way through, and eventually winning a Super Bowl."
