  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Week five showcases star performance from Finn Hogan- wait, Finn WHO?

Finn Hogan is not a name that many across the Mid-American Conference have had come to mind when describing BGSU Football.

Well on Saturday, the sophomore wide receiver had himself a tremendous day.

Hogan racked in six receptions for 102 yards, his career high.

His previous? One reception for 13 yards last week against Ohio. 

The alum of Glen Lake High School in Maple City, Michigan scored his first career touchdown for the Falcons in a way that only Odell Beckham Jr. could be proud of- an unbelievable one-handed grab in the end-zone to give Bowling Green their first lead of the game in the second quarter, a lead in which they never gave it back.

“Obviously the catch is cool but there’s a lot that goes into it, like the offensive line gave Connor [Bazelak] enough time and Connor made an unbelievable throw with pressure in his face, fading away, put it up and it’s backyard football at that point. I’m just super blessed he trusts me enough to throw it up to me,” Hogan said postgame.

Hogan was originally up in Mount Pleasant playing for Central Michigan as a walk-on. He then transferred to BGSU after his sophomore year, earning himself a scholarship on the Falcons. 

Although he’s not at CMU anymore, he still has an appreciation for how it shaped him and how it led him to Bowling Green. 

“Ya it’s been a long road, I didn’t really get much out of high school recruiting-wise, super grateful for Central Michigan giving me the opportunity to walk on there and build a name for myself and take the next step,” Hogan said. “Coach [Scot] Loeffler, coach Soup [Erik Campbell] , all those guys gave me the opportunity to help me get here and make a big name for myself.” 

After yesterday, Hogan sure made a big name for himself moving forward, securing the number two spot on SportsCenter’s top 10 list. 

As for head coach Scot Loeffler, Loeffler thinks very highly of Hogan and thinks he is a great example of what a player should be. 

“He was very gracious to come here, he earned a scholarship here, he was a walk-on at Central Michigan, and he is exactly what we’re looking for,” Loeffler said. “He is a team dude, he is smart, he is tough, we will eventually get him to be 245 yards and he will play in the NFL one day” 

With that type of praise from Loeffler, we can only sit back, watch, and see the player Hogan is going to become.
