Aaron Rodgers Pleasant Valley HS football QBIt was cool to see Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers address the media on Friday wearing his high school team’s hat.

Rodgers was a two-year starter for Pleasant Valley High School in Chico, California.  He threw for over 4,400 yards in his career and once threw a school record six touchdown passes in a game.

When asked about his high school during the news conference, Rodgers replied, “Yep, gotta represent. I do I think you have to remember where you came from in order to keep some of that humility that you’d like to keep. I had great experiences in high school competing and going to class.”

Rodgers was a very good student.  Various media reports state that he carried a 3.6 Grade Point Average and scored over 1,300 on his SAT’s.
