  1. Good evening, I am the Director of Operations for the Brown County Blackjacks and I couldn’t help but notice our program wasn’t listed on this page. We are a minor league football team and have had home fields in Green bay and the Appleton area throughout the last 12 years. Thought I would pass on the information, Thank you -SGT Deke Suri. https://www.facebook.com/Browncountyblackjacks
