Lacrosse Alum Chris Hogan Featured by Buffalo Bills
Sept. 2, 2014
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State men's lacrosse alum Chris Hogan '10 was named to the 53-man roster for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, and on Wednesday the team's website featured the former midfielder from New Jersey.
The 2010 graduate has his story told by the Bills through stories from his father Jim Hogan, Ramapo High School lacrosse coach Bob Turco, Bills receiver coach Rob Moore and Hogan himself. Moore had recruited him to Syracuse when Hogan was playing high school football.
Hogan, by way of Wyckoff, New Jersey, tallied 71 points on 57 goals and 14 assists during his four years in a Penn State lacrosse uniform. Following his graduation in 2010, he went to Monmouth to play football in graduate school.
While he went undrafted in the 2011 NFL Draft, he was signed by San Francisco before joining the Miami Dolphins in the summer. He made his impression felt during the 2011 exhibition games, but fell just short of making the final roster as one of the final cuts. He would spend the rest of 2011 on the Dolphins' and Giants' practice squads.
In Nov. 2012, Hogan was brought on by the Bills to the practice squad and eventually made the 53-man game-day roster on Dec. 18, 2012. While he didn't play a down that season, he went on to make the final roster in 2013, appearing in all 16 games for the Bills and catching 10 balls for 83 yards.
He's back in 2014 once again and in the preseason he made 9 catches for 99 yards. Hogan is one of six Bills wide receivers going into Week 1.
