Bryan ‘Flea’ Engel

Head athletic trainer | Green Bay Packers | Class of 1988

Every story the fifth head trainer in Green Bay Packers history tells about his Illini experience must start with the White Horse Inn, back when it was on Green Street.

“A fine establishment to get not only a cold beverage but also a good chicken wing,” says former UI kinesiology major Bryan ‘Flea’ Engel (BS ’88). “It is also where a good friend of mine introduced me to her best friend, which she had been threatening to do for months. 

“Twenty years and three sons later, we still think about the White Horse Inn.”
