A member of the U.S. Bobsled Team has gone from wearing Packers green and gold to pushing a sled in the hopes of Olympic gold.
Johnny Quinn, who tried out at wide receiver in a Green Bay Packers training camp in 2008, has made the U.S. Olympic bobsled team in the four-man competition.

Quinn was part of the Packers' 2008 preseason squad, but was released on the team's final cut before the regular season.
