Marquette Catholic High School will honor one of their own tonight during halftime of the Explorers football game.  Craig Hentrich was a kicker for Marquette from 1985-89, and then went on to success at the University of Notre Dame and then 17 seasons in the NFL for the Green Bay Packers and the Tennessee Titans.

In an appearance earlier this week on Let’s Talk; Hentrich said he’s looking forward to the festivities:

Hentrich told the Big Z he almost didn't play football, as he enjoyed golf growing up and never played on a football team until high school:

Tonight’s game is at 7pm and the ceremony will take place at halftime.  Former Marquette coach John Waters will be there, and former teammates of Hentrich are invited to join him on the field.   You can listen to the game live tonight on The Big Z.
