While all the talk this week has focused on Chico’s Aaron Rodgers, let’s not forget the handful of other Bay Area boys fulfilling the dream of playing in a Super Bowl this Sunday. In addition to Rodgers, fellow Cal grad and Green Bay teammate, Desmond Bishop, will be reppin’ Fairfield High School and San Francisco City College. Other local talent on the Pack includes former San Jose State receiver, James Jones. Look for Vacaville native and Will C. Wood High School grad, Jarrett Bush, to make an impact on special teams. And even though he’s unlikely to see much, if any playing time – since he’s just a 2nd year O-line guy – big shouts to Salinas High product, Evan Dietrich-Smith, an offensive guard for the Pack.

As for the black and yellow, the Bay Area ties are minimal. The only guy on the roster from the Yay is backup quarterback, Dennis Dixon, of San Leandro High fame. Unfortunately, Dixon’s still recovering from a knee injury earlier in the season, so there’s no chance of seeing him scramble on Sunday, even if Big Ben gets knocked out.

So there you have it! Here’s wishing all of our local boys lots of luck on Sunday. And just between you and me, I think Bush may turn out to be the game changer. What about you?
