We got to see the other side of Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Billy Turner when we visited his home in De Pere.

One, he likes to chill with his rescue dog Buddha when he's not protecting Aaron Rodgers.

Two, he loves to design clothes for others.

Three, bringing positivity to the world is what he's all about.

Rapid fire questions with Packers guard Billy Turner

"Initially the dudes in the offensive line room 100 percent noticed," Turner told Rod Burks. 'I'm definitely different from them. Those are my guys."

His passion for fashion started at a young age.

"I remember picking my own outfits out for school. I can remember grabbing stuff from my brother's clothes...just growing up seeing my parents style, and how it always showed who they were," Turner said.

When it comes to positive attitude, it all starts with one word for Turner - 'irie' - a Jamaican term used to indicate approval.

"That word right there is something that I keep with me that I try to share with people, because especially in this profession there's a lot of negativity that goes on, whether it's in the locker room or the field," he says.

Turner and the rest of the Packers will face the Seahawks this Sunday in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs.
