Chris Hogan: From NCAA Lacrosse to NFL
The Buffalo Bills have promoted wide receiver Chris Hogan from the practice squad to the 53-man roster for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
If that name isn't familiar to you, maybe you'll recall he was nicknamed "7-11" on HBO's hit series "Hard Knocks" which aired this past summer and profiled the Miami Dolphins journey through training camp. He earned the nickname from then-teammate Reggie Bush for always being open.
Another thing revealed about Hogan was that he was formerly a lacrosse player. Hogan, a New Jersey-native, played NCAA Division 1 lacrosse at Penn State before transferring to Monmouth University to play football for one year.
In September I profiled Hogan's rise from NCAA lacrosse player to the spotlight of the NFL life.
