As Syracuse fans, everyone here can appreciate this. CBA's own Greg Paulus might not be an NBA player....but perhaps the NFL is in his future?

The Green Bay Packers have worked out Duke University basketball player Greg Paulus, according to a league source.
Paulus is a former high school Gatorade Football Player of the Year selection who was offered football scholarships to Notre Dame and the University of Miami, but chose to play basketball at Duke.
Paulus was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils at point guard who was once named second-team All-ACC. He was a third-team Academic All-American selection.
A four-time all-state football player in New York, Paulus is listed at 6′1″, 180 pounds on the Duke basketball roster.
Paulus set six New York state passing records, including career passing yards (11,763). He threw 152 touchdown passes in 45 career games, leading his high school to a 42-3 record with him under center.
Paulus was the starting quarterback in the U.S. Army All-American game, also garnering All-American football honors from Parade Magazine.
