Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- The Green Bay Packers continued their ninth "Tailgate Tour" with a stop at Superior High School on Thursday night with Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy and kicker Mason Crosby among the tour celebrities.

"We know there's fans all over the state of Wisconsin," Crosby said. "They're everywhere, but this is right in the corner. We have fans up here that come to games and come see us where we are, so it's nice to come see them where they are and say thanks for the support."

This was the first time since 2007 the Packers "Tailgate Tour" had made a stop in Superior, Wis., and the tour also made stops Thursday in Ashland, Wis. and Maple, Wis.

Joining Murphy and Crosby were other current players, cornerback Jarrett Bush and linebacker Brad Jones, as well as former Packers Paul Coffman, Lynn Dickey, and James Lofton.

All proceeds from the night will go toward funding the National Bank Commerce Spartan Sports Complex.
