    Robert Tonyan Jr.

    From Tom James on Facebook:

    Looks like former IndState WR Robert Tonyan has made the Green Bay Packers initial 53-player regular season roster. Tonyan made GB as a tight end. Needs to hold on through Sunday though as NFL teams can still make roster moves before official 53-man list is set on Monday.

    Tonyan could wind up being the first former Sycamore on an NFL opening day roster since OG John Bock in 2000. Bock started at left offensive guard for Miami that season.

    18 years since we’ve put someone on an NFL roster? Wow. And in the last 20-30 years is it only Bock and Brandenburg (meaning was there anyone besides those two after Tunch, Davis and Glenn)?

    I think we’ve had guys get picked up mid season or brought up off the developmental squad

    Jamie Petrowski was in the mid 2000s.

    Practice squad for him. Then the Titans sent him to NFL Europe I believe.

    So Bock is the last ISU player to play a down of regular season NFL football....18 years ago. I’m guessing every other MVFC school has had multiple alums in the NFL in that same span.

    Congrats Robert and we’re pulling for you to end this near-two-decade drought.
