Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon has set his sights beyond the football field this offseason, pursuing a creative endeavor that showcases his passion for writing. At just 25 years old and entering his fourth season in the NFL, Dillon has achieved his goal of writing a children's book and is now enthusiastically promoting it.

The book, titled "Quadzilla Finds his Footing," is a beautifully illustrated story about a dinosaur named Quadzilla, inspired by Dillon's own nickname. Through the character's journey, the book imparts valuable lessons on happiness, self-acceptance, success, teamwork, and friendship. As the son of a schoolteacher and an avid reader and writer himself, Dillon's motivation to write this book grew stronger when he became a new father, yearning to pass on his own life lessons to his son.

The release of "Quadzilla Finds his Footing" has garnered widespread acclaim, extending beyond the realms of football and children's literature. Sports analyst Jordan Schultz praised the book, highlighting its ability to teach children the importance of embracing their differences.

Quadzilla is a book that teaches us why it's okay to be different. In fact, it teaches us why we should celebrate our differences. 

To celebrate the launch of his book, AJ Dillon will be hosting a special event at the Johnsonville Tailgate Village on the east side of Lambeau Field this Tuesday from 9 a.m. to noon. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the NFL star, receive a signed copy of "Quadzilla Finds his Footing," and take photos with Dillon.

Although the 2023 NFL season is fast approaching, Dillon remains focused on his priorities. When the time comes, he will dedicate himself entirely to football and help the Green Bay Packers conquer the NFC North. However, for now, his attention is devoted to this meaningful side project.
