SANDY — Brett Favre, the former star quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, showed up at Alta High’s football practice Tuesday to visit with the team.
Favre was in Salt Lake City to represent a pharmaceutical company that produces Rx Pro, a pain relief cream that is considered an alternative to addictive painkillers. Favre, who coached high school football last season, posed for photos, signed autographs, threw a few passes, and spoke to the Alta team.
“Have fun,” he said. “That’s the first thing, because before you know it’s over.”
He also mentioned his close friendship with Ty Detmer, the former BYU star and Favre’s former teammate.
