NOW: Aaron Rodgers reacts to Alex Trebek’s death; ’Weeknights will never be the same’

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The tributes keep coming for Alex Trebek and on Tuesday, Nov. 10, we heard more from Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- who was a big fan of the late "Jeopardy!" host. 

"Getting to meet him was one of the few moments in my life I've been star-struck," said Rodgers. 

Rodgers was a guest on the Pat McAfee show on YouTube, and he talked a lot about how much he loved "Jeopardy!" and how excited he was to appear on "Celebrity Jeopardy!" five years ago. 

"Winning the show was a secondary gift to getting the chance to meet him," said Rodgers. "And he was as enjoyable and kind and present as you would have hoped and dreamed." 

Rodgers said Trebek was a special part of Americans' daily lives.
