Located less than 40 miles from Green Bay, Two Rivers’ connection with professional football may seem inherent and obvious. But between 1939 and 1947 Two Rivers had a more intimate connection with the game as the pre-season training site for several teams. This presentation examines the details of those years and those teams. Presented by Two Rivers native, Patrick Gagnon. Gagnon is a retired history instructor who spent most of his teaching career at Silver Lake College. He is currently a member of the Two Rivers City Council.
