Andrew Christopher Quarless (born October 6, 1988) is an American football player for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League. He played college football at Penn State under Joe Paterno. He was drafted by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft.[1]

Early years

Andrew Quarless attended Holy Trinity High School on Long Island until his junior year when he transferred to Uniondale High School, where he had his greatest season before entering Penn State. After winning the Super Bowl he returned to Uniondale where he was honored by Uniondale Ave being renamed "Andrew Quarless Way."

College career

Quarless had a breakout season as a true freshman in 2006.[2] He was pushed into Joe Paterno in a game against Wisconsin, which broke Paterno's leg.[3] Success in the 2007 season was limited due to suspensions and loss of his starting position at tight end to Mickey Shuler, Jr.[4] Quarless saw limited playing time in 2008 until the Illinois game when he started in the place of an injured Shuler and caught a key 4th-quarter touchdown.[2][5] He caught the game-winning catch in the 2010 East-West Shrine Game.

Professional career
