“When you get to go at persons 51 occasions — I did not recognize that, but yeah, it undoubtedly is an offensive lineman’s desire,” Hoffman said.
The weekly honor was icing on the cake for Hoffman, who took to social media after the video game to demonstrate why the matchup in opposition to Louisville coach Scott Satterfield and offensive coordinator (and offensive line mentor) Dwayne Ledford was personal.
“I never forgot and of course I do hold grudges,” Hoffman tweeted.
Hoffman went on to explain that Satterfield and Ledford advised him he wasn’t “good enough” to play for them when he was a senior coming out of Statesville Significant College and they have been at Appalachian Condition. Hoffman played them twice though at Coastal Carolina, but dropped each instances.
“There was no precise workers other than them that stated that, but I necessarily mean, obviously, I felt like I bought passed up a ton throughout superior college,” Hoffman reported. “I didn’t have any Ability Five offers or something like that, but I just kind of utilized that, what they advised me, as determination, and genuinely everyone passing me up as motivation. I don’t sit below and imagine about it every working day, but when that match arrived up on the plan and I realized who that staff members was, it undoubtedly stood out to me.”
