At halftime during Burlington High School's Homecoming game on Friday, Tony Romo will visit his alma mater to dedicate the high school's new synthetic turf field.
The Burlington Area School District named the field the Tony Romo Field in February 2020 to recognize Romo's continued connection to the Burlington community.
The intention was to show appreciation for the unique way that he has continued to have a positive impact on his hometown.
Romo was the first Burlington High School student-athlete to be named All-State in three sports - football, basketball and golf.
He went on to be one of the most successful student-athletes to come from the state of Wisconsin.
Tony Romo will be calling the Green Bay Packers vs. New England Patriots game at Lambeau Field on Sunday, October 2.
Being back in Wisconsin for the weekend provided an opportunity for Romo and his family to attend Burlington High School’s Homecoming game.
