COPY-6th grader still wearing Packers jersey

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A sixth-grader in western Wisconsin proudly wears a green and gold jersey in support of his favorite team - the Green Bay Packers. And, it's a shirt he's worn every day for nearly three years.

David Pehl, of Holmen, says the Packers jersey was given to him for Christmas a couple years ago and once he put it on, he just couldn't take it off. The jersey is hand-washed every other day, but after 1, 034 days of consecutive wear, the once-bright jersey has faded and the name on the back - "Rodgers" - is barely legible.

David's dad, Dave Pehl, tells WKBT-TV ( ) he may be responsible for planting the idea because he mentioned a boy who had worn a Brett Favre jersey for four years. Now, his son is shooting for that record.
