Cornell grad JC Tretter is having one of his best seasons of his football career. After battling injuries, Tretter is now the starting center for the Green Bay Packers.
Tretter, who’s a converted tight end to an offensive lineman, was drafted in the 4th round of the 2013 NFL Draft by Green Bay and has battled through plenty of adversity. In his first season with the Packers, Tretter suffered a broken ankle after he was fighting his way to a starting position on the line.
Then in 2015, Tretter suffered a knee injury and was again pushed down on the depth chart. Now three years after his big break of being drafted, Tretter is having his best season as a pro. JC was named the starting center for the Packers before the beginning of the 2016 season and is making the most of his opportunity.
18 Sports talks to Tretter about his shot to see the field and help the Packers get back to the Super Bowl. Green Bay hosts the Chicago Bears Thursday night at 8:25 p.m.
