Tony (WQOW) -- NFL training camps begin later this month. Flambeau high school grad and Wisconsin alum Jim Leonhard would love to be in any of those camps, but he's a little partial to Green Bay.

Leonhard was back at Flambeau high school on Friday for his annual Jim Leonhard Skills Camp. More than one-hundred high school players were on hand for the first day of the camp. Leonhard has played nine seasons in the NFL and says he's been in contact with a number of teams this summer, including the Packers.

"It would mean a lot, but we've had a lot of conversations with teams, Green Bay being one of them," says Leonhard. "They're a great organization, I'd love to play for them but it hasn't worked out up to now. You never know what can happen in the future, but we'll see. They're a great organization and it's always fun to see the fans and have a lot of family that follows them closely."
