Former Golden Gopher John Hoese Signs with Green Bay Packers
Former Golden Gopher running back John Hoese has finally signed an NFL contract with the defending Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers. Hoese was not drafted in April's draft so he had to wait for the NFL lockout to end in order to sign with a team.
Hoese walked on to the Gopher football team as a safety. He was converted to running back during the 2008 off season. He went on to start 7 games last season as the starting full back for the Gophers. What a guy.
Good luck to you in the NFL, John and go Gophers!
