Bodyguard to the Packers by Jerry Parins
Bodyguard to the Packers: Beat Cops, Brett Favre, and Beating Cancer takes you inside the world-famous Green Bay Packers franchise to a time when former security director Jerry Parins roamed hotel hallways and watched tavern back doors to enforce player curfews. A distinguished police officer, Parins became director of security and ultimately protected some of the greatest names in NFL history. Brett Favre, Bart Starr, Mike Holmgren and many other legends in Packers lore count him as a friend. Their friendships encircled him when he was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2003. In the fight of his life, Parins broke the traditional male lines of silence. Parins became a tireless supporter of cancer patients and their families, and an advocate for the life-saving screenings that promote early diagnosis and treatment. Hardcover book is 256 pages.
