DOOR COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon has been presented the key to Door County.

Dillon regularly tweets about his love for Door County and his visits there. On Tuesday, Destination Door County presented Dillon with the symbolic key.

“I love everything about Door County,” Dillon said at the DDC annual meeting. “Thank you guys very much, super honored, and a little taken a back right now, thank you so much.”

Dillon says his fiancée’s family introduced him to the magic of Door County. He proposed in Egg Harbor.

The DDC annual meeting was held in Jacksonport. About 130 business leaders and community members gathered at the Fernwood Gardens Ballroom at Mr. G’s. It’s the first time they’ve held an in-person meeting in two years.

Destination Door County is the official tourism marketing and management organization for the county.

Dillon also stopped by Door County YMCA to take part in a mini football camp for YMCA Flag Football.

“The YMCA had this AMAZING AJ Dillon Football Camp. I learned and got to do football drills with Mr. Dillon. I even scored the highest vertical jump and got a pair of his signed gloves! We are getting them framed and they are never coming off my wall! I loved tonight,” said Avery Freimuth.
