David Witthoft, 11, of Ridgefield, Conn., traveled with his family to Lambeau Field to watch the Packers' 34-13 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
Witthoft admits he will probably soon have to hang up the jersey, which he got for Christmas in 2003.
``I thought I would keep wearing it as long as I could get it over my head,'' Witthoft told the Green Bay Press-Gazette after the game. ``But I'll probably take it off in the next year, certainly. Then I'll hang it up in a frame or maybe send it to the (Packers) Hall of Fame.''
His mother, Carolyn, washes the jersey every two days and has had to mend it.
