An unfortunate postscript to what was a brilliant evening for his team, Green Bay Packers’ running back Aaron Jones lost a necklace containing a portion of his father’s ashes in the End Zone.

However a reporter at a very empty Lambeau Field noticed that at 1:45 AM on Tuesday morning, one of the first team trainers—Bryan “Flea” Engel—was searching the End Zone for the necklace.

Jones had a huge game against the Detroit Lions on Monday night when he scored four touchdowns in a 35-17 rout.

He revealed to reporters afterwards that he had lost the necklace which had a pendant containing some of his father’s ashes, who died when he was 56 from complications with COVID-19.

“He’d be happy. He’d be like, ‘If you lose it anywhere, lose it in the end zone,’” Jones admitted in high spirits during a postgame interview.

The pendant was black, which likely didn’t help in spotting it easily, but nevertheless Mr. Engel ended up finding the football equivalent of a needle in a haystack, bringing the brief tragedy to a heartwarming end.

“[He] found it, so we’re perfect,” Jones said on Tuesday morning, speaking with The Steve Czaban Show on 97.3 The Game in Milwaukee.

“Thank you to him. He was out there until 1:45 [a.m. CT]. It shows how much they care about us,” ESPN reported.

Perhaps it’s fitting something like this should happen at Lambeau, home of the only fan-owned football team.

Green Bay is a tiny city, but even after 13 league championships, including four Super Bowl wins, they’ve never left their home field in favor of the glitz and glam of a major American metropolis.

Mr. Engel’s actions, then, in many ways, reflect those of his franchise.
