It's my first time in the NFC so it's definitely going to be interesting, got to learn divisions a little bit, I have to deal with Green Bay this year, Atlanta, San Francisco, Seattle where I've been dealing with New England for years and years. So it's always different, new challenges, I was down there for about two months for the off-season program, everything went great, awesome group of coaches, players, I'm excited to get down there in a couple of weeks, strap up the pads and see what we can do."

Former Eau Claire North and UW-Green Bay basketball player Hannah Quilling was back in Eau Claire this weekend. Quilling who played 127 games for the Phoenix, good for fourth all-time in the history of Green Bay's program is now a graduate assistant at Ashford University in Iowa.
Hannah's original plan after college was to be a physician's assistant, but that career path is on hold as her passion for basketball still burns. Quilling explains, "That emptiness was basketball and the competition of it all and coaches was the closest that I could get and I'm really enjoying it. And right now for career goals, this is it. I really enjoy this aspect of basketball and seeing it from both ends, the bench and right on the court is a neat thing and able to touch girls and teach them the way that I had coaches lead, and mentor and teach me so it's exciting."
