Packers NFL Trainer Searched Football Field Until 2 A.M. to Find Player’s Necklace Containing His Father’s Ashes
Packers trainer stays out till 2:00 AM to find running back Aaron Jones' lost necklace containing his father's ashes.
An unfortunate postscript to what was a brilliant evening for his team, Green Bay Packers’ running back Aaron Jones lost a necklace containing a portion of his father’s ashes in the End Zone grass.
A reporter still at work in the very empty Lambeau Field noticed that at 1:45 AM on Tuesday morning, one of the first team trainers—Bryan “Flea” Engel—was still on the field searching for the necklace.
Jones had a huge game against the Detroit Lions on Monday night when he scored four touchdowns in a 35-17 rout.
He revealed to reporters afterwards that he had lost the necklace which had a football pendant containing some of his father’s ashes. His dad, who was always in the stands when his son played, had died earlier this year at age 56 from complications with COVID-19.
“He’d be happy. He’d be like, ‘If you lose it anywhere, lose it in the end zone,'” Jones quipped while in high spirits during a postgame interview.
The pendant was black, which likely didn’t help in spotting it easily, but nevertheless Mr. Engel ended up finding the football equivalent of a needle in a haystack, bringing the brief ordeal to a heartwarming end.
