MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr collapsed during a speech in Madison, but conference organizers say he appears to be OK.

The Green Bay Packers’ former quarterback and coach finished speaking at the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority conference at Monona Terrace, then collapsed on stage Tuesday morning.

Authority spokesman Kevin Fischer says Starr then sat up and said he was fine. Fischer tells the Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/VjSiLi ) the 78-year-old Starr was speaking coherently and left the convention center with his wife, Cherry, got into a limo and was taken to the Dane County Regional Airport.
