Meet Jeremy Kamps, the 2021 FanSided Fan of the Year!

Get to know lifelong Green Bay Packers’ fan, Jeremy Kamps, who has just been chosen as the 2021 FanSided Fan of the Year!

Jeremy Kamps might not seem like your average football fan — an NYU-educated New York City playwright. But his fandom for the Packers has suffused his life (and work) going all the way back to childhood. That lifelong relationship with the Packers has been filled with his and lows and now there’s a new high-point to celebrate — recognition as FanSided’s 2021 Fan of the Year.

Kamps spoke with FanSided after being selected as a finalist and talked about what it means to be a Steelers fan.

“I forced my parents to drive three hours to Packer summer training in De Pere, WI and I got James Lofton’s autograph on a manila envelope which I framed and put on my wall,” he wrote. “I believed, at one point, that Randy Wright would turn the franchise around. Then, I believed that Don Majkowski was going to be the next Elway. I was at the pre-season game at Camp Randall stadium where Favre first took the field as a Packer. He ran out to be the holder for the extra point and then came running back to the sideline because he forgot to put his helmet on. I said, who is that guy?  And then…”

“I wore a Packer jersey to my first day of school in kindergarten, first grade and second grade. I still have the jersey and am saving it for my two-year-old son,” Kamps wrote in his Fan of the Year contest submission.

The FanSided Fan of the Year contest is meant to recognize fans who exemplify dedication, integrity and “Fansmanship” all for the love of the game. Good Fansmanship means representing the teams you follow and the communities those teams represent in a positive way at all times thus perpetuating all that is good about sports and sports fandom.

Kamps was chosen from an incredible selection of finalists and will receive $100 worth of Minute Media gear, a one-year subscription to Fubo.TV and a two-night stay at Wynn Las Vegas, along with roundtrip airfare. Stay tuned for details on next year’s contest and maybe you could be chosen as the 2022 FanSided Fan of the Year.
