Former TE Andrew Quarless Mourns Loss Of Daughter

Tragic news surfaced in the Penn State community as former tight end Andrew Quarless announced his daughter died during childbirth last Wednesday. Quarless told the Green Bay Packers that he’d miss the beginning of training camp last week because of an “extremely difficult family situation.”

After missing the first two days of camp, Quarless was back on the field Saturday and spoke to the media on Monday with his family and five-year-old son in attendance. He told reporters it was “probably the saddest day of my life.”

“It felt real good just to get out there, catch some passes, be able to run around a little bit, kind of get back to your old self and get back into things. I’m looking forward to moving on in this camp and getting ready for the season.”

Quarless spent four years at Penn State under Joe Paterno before being drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Packers. He’s been with Green Bay ever since.

“I thank this team for the type of support they have given me to help me get through this,” Quarless said. “Just very thankful for these guys. It’s really a family in here. It’s really a family.”

Our deepest condolences go out to Andrew and his family.
