"I am not anti-Packer. My blood flows just as green-and-gold as anyone else," Krueger said.

Tough Seymour stops Hawks

The Seymour Thunder rolled Shawano on the mat Thursday, recording six pins and holding the young Hawks squad to one decision.

"They're tough," he added. "They have a really good team."

Shawano's lone score in the 61-3 meet came when Charlie Henn (135) beat Josh Lamberg, 14-10.

Rocky DeLorme of Shawano got beat in overtime by Victor Hernandez (125 ), one of the top-ranked wrestlers in the state.
