Report: Former Duke guard Paulus works out for Packers

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.

    Reggie Love is running the White House? That's funny, klitz. That's a fairly bold statement to make with your first post, isn't it? I don't recall seeing Reggie's name on the ballot. Hmmmm. I thought he was an aide in Obama's administration? Not THE aide, one of many.

    As for K's "agonizing" decision to sit Paulus, you may be stretching it a bit there, as well. Agonizing is pulling the ventilator on someone you love, not sitting them in order to pad your resume with wins...

    Paulus is a classy guy with character. He chose to pursue a Duke basketball career over football and had a great time doing it. Two ACC Championships isn't bad. Coach K had an agonizing decision when Paulus became a liability on defense. Anyone remember Duke-UNC Feb 11? Three point game with 5 min to play; next 2 min, Paulus gets beat 4 times in a row by Lawson off the dribble and it is an 11 point game. Now Paulus is trying his athletic skills in football. Eventually, he may end up running the White House for the President like Reggie Love, the last Dukie to play both major sports, is now doing.

    Good for him. He definitely won't be going to the NBA - you gotta do something with your life!

  • Coach K is still GREAT Apr 14, 2:59 p.m.

    He couldn't hear the sirens b/c his music was too loud... ;-)

    I may be wrong but this was the only strike on Lawson's record so what's your point?

    You brought it up.

    Like I said, Ty didn't try to outrun the cops.

  • Coach K is still GREAT Apr 14, 2:53 p.m.

    So basically what you are saying is breaking the law while you are still on the team will make you a "thug in the NBA" but breaking the law after your college career will not make you a "thug in the NBA". Great logic there. Now I see why you still think Coach K is great. That's the problem, you don't think.

    Not at all, but we were discussing COLLEGE CAREERS while still at school.

    I may be wrong, but this was the only strike on JJ'S record. I was merely replying to someones statements regarding TL learning from his mistakes. More than once...

    hahahaha....i thought this was a joke when i saw the title

  • Coach K is still GREAT Apr 14, 2:49 p.m.

    JaMarcus Russell is a QB in the NFL.

    SMART has nothing to do with it.

    Somehow, I think I'd choose someone with a degree from DUKE over someone that was given his grades at LSU...

    What Ty Lawson did was no worse than your beloved JJ. The difference is that Ty didn't try to outrun the police.

    When are you KaraWHINA fans going to get it through your THICK SKULLS?? JJ did this after his DUKE Career was OVER!!!!!!! HE WAS NOT ON THE DUKE BASKETBALL ROSTER!!!!!!!
