Amidst all the jerseys and logos out at Packers training camp, there's one Packer fan standing out this week.

"The nickname is Pack Vader," said the man wearing the Vader mask and the Packers colors.

For that Packer fan, a trip away from the Death Star and into the fun of training camp is special.

"This is my very first time and it's awesome," Pack Vader said. "There's no way i can describe the excitement of being here."

He, like so many other fans here this week, are thrilled to see football back in Green Bay.

"The smiling faces, the interaction between the players and the community, it's great," fan Phillip Scott said. "It's so nice to get out here and be a part of it."

"I think it's the biggest part of history probably in Wisconsin," fan Easton Butler said.

This year the history is taking a starring role. It's 100 seasons of Packers football here in Titletown.

"If i can put it in one word, the meaning is success," Pack Vader said. "You're talking 100 years, and there's so many things that can go wrong in 100 years, but they're still here."

A century later and the Packers have 13 world championships. Pack Vader hopes for one more.

"Bring Lombardi home, that's what i'm looking for," he said.
