Josh Daniel Hermann

Football Star

 For our football fan!  from

Dad and Marsha

We love you!


     Joshua Daniel Hermann, age 10, from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, loved football.  His all-time favorite team was the Green Bay Packers and he loved to watch the football players in action.


     Best of all, the Green Bay Packers had made it to the championship, and they were going to play against the Minnesota Vikings.  The game was going to start in a few minutes! 


     Josh was waiting for Dad, Uncle Dave, and Zach to join him in watching the game.


     The crowd in the stadium sang the National Anthem, then gave a mighty cheer just as the game was about to start. 


     But Josh was getting sleepy.


     "I've just got to stay awake for the championship game." thought Josh as he watched the coin toss. 


     But Josh was really tired, and he slowly fell into a deep sleep.


     Then the strangest thing happened.  As if by magic, Josh suddenly found himself at the football stadium! 


     The Championship was being played right in front of his eyes!


     He heard the loudspeaker.  "Attention ladies and gentlemen," the announcer called out.  "The Green Bay Packers just asked if Joshua Hermann will join them for this game!"


     Josh couldn't believe his luck!  Aaron Rodgers came up to him and said, "Josh, we need you on the team.  If you'll help us out for the rest of the game, we just might be able to win the Championship!"


     "I'll do the best I can," Josh said.


     The players quickly got Josh into a uniform.  Maybe it was a little big, but Josh didn't care. He was actually in a huddle with the Green Bay Packers.


     Josh joined the Green Bay Packers on the line of scrimmage. 


     As he was facing the Minnesota Vikings, he remembered Aaron Rodgers saying to him, "I want you to go long and to the right, and then I'm going to pass the ball to you."


     "I sure wish Dad, Uncle Dave, and Zach could see me now," thought Josh to himself excitedly.


     Josh ran as hard as he could.  The ball seemed to sail through the air forever.  Josh caught it and ran as fast as he could.  The Minnesota Vikings tried to tackle him, but he was too fast.


     The crowd went wild as Josh scored a touchdown.


     Later in the game, the score became tied.  Aaron Rodgers told Josh that the coach wanted to see him


     "Josh , we all know you can catch and run," the coach said.  "But if you can kick a field goal, we can win the game."


     "I'll try," Josh said with a big smile.


     The players ran back out the field.  The crowd grew silent.


     The ball was snapped.  Josh kicked that ball with all his strength.  It flew through the air and sailed right over the goal post!  Josh had scored the winning points!  The Green Bay Packers had won the game!


     It was like a dream!  The other players hoisted Josh above their shoulders and marched him around the football field.  Josh heard the loudspeaker announce, "Joshua Daniel Hermann has been chosen the Most Valuable Player today."


     The crowd started cheering, "Josh, Josh, Josh..."


     "Josh, Josh, Josh.  Wake up!"  Dad, Uncle Dave, and Zach called.  You must have fallen asleep.  The game has already started."


     "But I was just about to get my trophy for the Most Valuable Player award,"  Josh murmured as he rubbed the sleep out of his eyes.


     "You'll always be the most valuable player around here," Dad, Uncle Dave, and Zach replied.  "Now let's make some popcorn and watch the game!"
