For the hometeam

Fairport native Nick Greco will be back in Rochester to premiere “The 60 Yard Line,” a charmingly goofy indie comedy that tells the story of Ben “Zagger” Zagowski (Ryan Churchill, also the film’s writer), a diehard Green Bay Packers fan who, with the support of his Chicago Bears-loving best friend (played by Greco), purchases a house in the parking lot of Wisconsin’s Lambeau Field and proceeds to convert it into a football fan paradise. The premise was inspired by real-life events.
