Posted April 13, 2009
Profootballtalk.com is reporting per a league source that former Duke point guard Greg Paulus has recently worked out for the Green Bay Packers.
Paulus was the high school football Gatorade National Player of the Year his senior season at Christian Brothers Academy in upstate New York. The former second team All-ACC point guard threw for 11,763 yards and 152 touchdowns in 45 career high school games on the gridiron. Christian Brothers Academy went 42-3 with Paulus as its starter.
Paulus chose Duke basketball over football offers from the likes of Notre Dame and the University of Miami.
A spokesperson for Duke had no comment on the report Monday night.
Paulus wouldn't be the first former Duke basketball player to try out for the Packers. Reggie Love, who played both football and basketball during his time at Duke, tried out unsuccessfully for the team in 2004.
Love is now the personal aide to president Barack Obama.
