Former Packer opens up Sweet Frog in Plover, talks life after football


While current Packers players took to the field for Family Night, a former Packer was in our area promoting his new business venture.

But for William Henderson, what's life like after football?

"I've been able to enjoy all this state has to offer and hopefully support this state like it's supported me," Henderson said.

Five years ago, Henderson was making big hits on the football field. Now, he's transitioning to the business world, as a franchise owner of Sweet Frog, a new frozen yogurt shop in Plover.

"I don't want to be just a business person, I want to be a part of the community throughout Wisconsin," Henderson said.

But of all the options for life after football, why frozen yogurt?

"This is another opportunity for me to have fun, doing what I love, that's help families find a little piece and pleasure and something simple," Henderson told Newsline 9.

Henderson says his time in the NFL prepared him for this chapter of his life.

"Understanding business, understanding responsibility of being on the team, being attentive, having a product people want. That's what I was as a Packer," Henderson said.

But no matter where he goes, Henderson says he will always be a cheesehead.

"I'm never leaving my family, this is my home," Henderson said.

And even though he's no longer on the field, Henderson says he's looking forward to this season.
