“It goes back to when I was a child. I’ve been a Cheesehead since then. I love my Packers, I love my history and of course, Lombardi is my hero,” Castillo said. “A friend of mine from Wisconsin that now lives in Texas brought this coat to me one day and she said try it on. And she said ‘you know who you look like?’ And I said ‘yeah I know who I look like.' Then I went and got the hat and that’s where it started.”
