In case you were wondering what former Penn State quarterback John Hufnagel was up to, look no further. The current head coach of the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders has been busy choosing a kicker and, by the way, cutting fellow Penn Staters from his roster! Well, maybe Hufnagel wasn’t directly responsible for the move, but regardless, the Stampeders recently announced that 2nd-year offensive tackle Gerald Cadogan had been cut from the team. Read more…

And you all thought his career was over. Former Penn State running back and Philadelphia Eagles’ third-round draft pick Tony Hunt has signed with the Raiffeisen Vikings in the Austrian Football League. He signed with the team in the beginning of March. Here is an excerpt from the press release of his signing:
Tony Hunt war einmal der Runningback in Pennsylvania, der es für die Eagles hätte richten sollen. Hunt galt 2007 gemeinhin noch als Support und mittelfristig sogar als Nachfolger von Brian Westbrook – vier Jahre später nimmt er nun stattdessen die Nachfolge von Josiah Cravalho in Angriff.
Which obviously translates (very roughly) to:
Tony Hunt was once a running back in Pennsylvania that would have to judge for the Eagles. Hunt was in 2007 still commonly as a support medium and even in place of Brian Westbrook – four years later he is now instead the successor of Josiah Cravalho addressed.
If I’m Tony Hunt, my ego is HUGE after reading that.
The Austrian regular season starts this weekend and is very short, only consisting of 6 games and culminates with the Austrian Bowl. After the regular season and playoffs, teams from the Austrian League go on to play in Europe-wide tournaments like the Eurobowl. This could actually lead to a matchup of former Penn State running backs in professional football if Austin Scott, who plays professionally in Germany, and Hunt meet in the Eurobowl. If I’m able to find stats from these games, I will certainly post them.
