William Fredrich Schroeder (born January 9, 1971) is a former American football wide receiver in the NFL. He attended Sheboygan South High School and then went on to the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse, where he starred in track and field. Schroeder joined the UW-La Crosse football team in only his fifth year of college after exhausting his eligibility to compete in track. Despite playing only one year, Schroeder's athleticism (4.26 second 40 yard dash and 44 inch vertical leap) drew the attention of NFL scouts. His Packer Number Was 84. [1]

Schroeder was drafted in the 6th round (181st overall) of the 1994 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. Schroeder went on to play 10 seasons in the NFL. His best statistical season was 1999, when he caught 74 passes for 1,051 yards and 5 touchdowns. [2] He last played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2004. On May 22, 2008 Schroeder informed Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson that he would like to retire as a Packer.[3] He signed with the Packers on May 21, 2008 and retired the next day.[4] Schroeder was affectionately known as "The Sheboygan Flash" and Pro Bowl Bill to many Packer fans.
