Packers sign Gophers product Hoese

Gopher fans and Big Ten watchers will remember Jon Hoese, the fullback who went through quite an emotional time during the 2010 Big Ten football season. Hoese’s dad slipped into a coma on a Friday, the son missed practice most of that week and then returned to play in a stirring game that following weekend for the opener. Watch the video in this post for the complete story. Hoese signed with the defending Super Bowl champions Green Bay Packers as a free agent today. He had spent some time with the team this summer before being cut. Here’s the news release at Packers.com and here’s his NFL player page.

That was a remarkable night for Jon and I love the fact that I had the pleasure of being at the game to witness his excellent performance and tribute to his Dad.
