GREEN BAY, Wis. — Northern Michigan’s Kyle Steuck was signed by his hometown Green Bay Packers.

“It’s a dream come true,” Steuck said. “Being from Green Bay, you grow up dreaming of being a Packer. Now, I’m getting my opportunity to be one.”

The former Wildcat was added to Green Bay’s 90-man roster. He participated in the Packers’ rookie mini-camp May 5-7.

In 2015, Steuck was named to the all-GLIAC second team after starting every game under center. A two-year captain, the Green Bay native played in all 44 of the Wildcats’ games over the past four seasons.

During his time at Northern Michigan, Steuck received all-GLIAC honorable mention accolades in 2014 and the team’s offensive newcomer of the year award in 2012.

A star in the classroom, the Physical Education/Secondary Education double major became the first Wildcat to be selected for membership in the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society. He was also honored on the 2014 and 2015 GLIAC all-academic excellence squads.

Steuck is the second Wildcat to be make an NFL team’s 90-man roster. Fellow 2016 graduate Marcus Tucker is currently a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
