Aaron Rodgers didn’t have to throw many Hail Marys during his NFL MVP season in 2020, but the Green Bay Packers quarterback proved he can still launch a football into the stratosphere at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.
In what has become an annual tradition, Rodgers tossed a football from the 17th tee box to fans waiting in boats parked alongside the course. And Carter Eckl of the Nevada News Group was there to capture the moment.
