I had the pleasure of hosting John's first professional autograph signing at my memorabilia shop 3 years ago and I have to say that he was the friendliest pro I have ever met....His entire family and all of his relatives also turned out to give him their support...John is a local hero that is going to be one of the great ones !!

Dont know this John personally and Im not even a packers fan. My team didnt stand a chance from week one lol, thanks Wade. I am glad to see someone from our beloved York county make it in the big times, not only in the NFL but also coming from a no name to a very big impact player. I will definetly be rooting for you John. As a former Lion, Ill say we salute Dover High school for bringing up such a fine player congrats to the Kuhn family. Go get a ring that you played for John dont settle for good enough.

I worked with John's mom, Patty and new John since he was a little fellow. I know his sister McKena also. John was a great kid. He kind and respectful.I am not surprised he grew to be such a fine young man. Best of luck to John and his team and to his family. No matter how it turns out we are all proud of you. Even though I have been an Eagle fan my entire life I will be a cheesehead for the rest of the season. Love ya Kuhn family

I was at a high school game in York Pa. watching a football game at Central's field against Dover Eagles. Can't remember the year , but it was probably his senior year and Dover did not have a perticually great team. I watched this running back from Dover making all these tuff runs against a very good Central defense thru my binoculars and I said to myself , "now there is a football player". I found out who he was later and that he had a very good season and career at Dover wondering if a college would grab him. Ship did and after watching him several times adjust to the college game , I was convinced that he could have played at a major Division 1 school and shined to boot. Just goes to show you so much for size , stats , where you came from or anyother statistical accessment , it all comes down to heart , character and work ethic. Could have been more John Kuhn's out of York had all three characteristics mentioned , been instilled in them , with the reputation of being a good person "AFTER" making it , number #1. Parents who instill that humbleness should be proud the most for. Go PAckers and I usually don't care who wins in the pros because of the nature of the beast. Go John.

From a fellow Shippensburg Alum, I will be rooting for both John and Brent Grimes (ATL) tonight. What an outstanding pair of young men, both former teammates may be involved in the play that sends one of their teams that much closer to a Super Bowl!
Red Raider pride will be strong in this one.

Why didn't you call him and get a couple of quotes for the story? His dad could have given you his cellphone number. It's not like he's Aaron Rodgers. Bad job.
Kudos to John

To date, it is quite heartening, when ALMOST 100% of posts on ANY thread are this complimentary. What a credit to an extremely hard-working young man, John Kuhn. Wishing you much success in the future, John! You are a tremendous roll model for your school/college/family/communit y!!! And John gets to play another one (ICE)!

I have been a Philadelphia Eagles fan all my life until I had to take this year off due to the horrible excuse for a pro qb they have in vick. I was rooting for Kuhn during the game last week and I will continue rooting for him and the great qb Rodgers. What a great story and an awesome guy Kuhn has become. He is what every young kid should strive to become. He is a true role model of why you need character, heart, and dedication. Not to mention he has a degree in chemistry also. WOW!!!! Thanks for giving me hope that there are still a few great people in the NFL. Not just a bunch of dumb criminals. Sorry vick but Kuhn makes you look like a real LOSER!!! Good luck Kuhn and the Packers!!!

I had the pleasure of playing with/working out with John in high school. It was amazing to see his work ethic in the weight room and on the track, as he was also an outstanding track and field athlete. I remember him launching the javelin and having to get a shovel to dig his shot puts out of the mud because he buried them so deep. He was, and has become a truley amazing athlete and a testament to hard work. Several years later, after he had joined the Packers and had become a success, I ran into him through my job. He was the same old John from Dover, despite his Super Bowl ring and his newly signed millionaire contract. What a refreshing thing to see, and what a proud former teammate and weightlifting partner I am to see that he is still truley unchanged. I wish him the best of luck both on and off of the field! John, you've made your home, your little league team, your high school, and your alma mater extremely proud!

I have been waiting for a local paper to write about John Kuhn for quite awhile now. This man has accomplished so much and I think it's important that we showcase our local talent.

I played (football) against John in high school. From my few interactions with him, he always seemed like a very nice and humble guy. No offense to Dover, but he literally carried that team on his back during his junior/senior seasons. He made some truly incredible plays. However, I never imagined he would get to the level he's at today. That's not a knock on John. Rather, it's a testament to his hard-work and perserverence. It's truly remarkable how much he's accomplished since leaving Dover.

Congrats to John! I hope you continue to have a successful career both on and off the field.

Do not know this young man and while I am a Steelers fan...I am certainly very, very proud to have a York County native in the Superbowl! What an accomplished career this young man has had from the looks of things! Keep up the great work!!! Looking forward to seeing what happens on the field on the 6th!
