When the weekend's NFL draft ended and his name was not among the 254 called, Louisiana College senior offensive tackle was admittedly disappointed. But, that disappointment would not last long.

Shorty after the last pick was made, Vujnovich received a text from his agent. It said, "Congratulations, you're going to Green Bay."

"I couldn't believe it. I couldn't stop smiling," Vujnovich said.

The first call made was to his father, Frank, then it was the announcement on Twitter: "Green bay it is!!! #timetogrind."

Green Bay, of courses, meant the Green Bay Packers, one of the teams that was looking to upgrade its offensive line in the draft.

"I don't know much about them," Vujnovich said. "I think I have a good shot. I'll work hard and make the best of the opportunity."

In the 6-5, 295-pound Vujnovich, the Packers will get a Division III player that many feel grew to the level of a Division I player after coming to LC from Belle Chasse, LA.

In 2012, Vujnovich, one of the best pass blockers and overall linemen in school history, graded out at a team-leading 93 percent with 27 pancake blocks. Also a two-time 1st Team All-ASC member, Vujnovich protected the blind side for quarterback Jamie Bunting, who produced just the third 3,000 yard passing season in school history. Bunting and Ryan Montague formed the first 3,000 yard passer/1,000 yard rusher combination in LC history. He was named second team All-Louisiana and second team All-South.

"I just want to tell the coaches, 'thank you.' I would be where I am without them," Vujnovich said. "Coach Richard made me into the player that I am along with Coach (Dennis) Dunn, Coach (Clay) Matchett and all the other coaches."

Vujnovich is scheduled to graduate May 11 with a degree in criminal justice. He wasn't sure yet whether he would miss the ceremony since his agent had not given him all the details about when the Packers will hold their rookie mini-camp.

Suffice it to say, if he does have to miss graduation, wearing the green and gold instead of orange and blue that day won't be a bad trade-off.
Louisiana College Football Documentary "Win Today" set to premiere Saturday May 4th

Nearly a year in the making, Al Quartemont's highly anticipated documentary "Win Today" is set make its first public showing on Saturday May 4th at 7 p.m. in Guinn Auditorium on the campus of Louisiana College.

"Win Today", which was produced by Quartemont (LC's Instructor of Journalism) as part of his Master's Degree curriculum, chronicles the journey of the 2012 Louisiana College football team from the start of summer camp all the way through their first ever trip to the NCAA Division III playoffs when they faced off against the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

I'd like to see him play Guard. Very athletic according to his coach, who thinks he's the most athletic offensive lineman he's ever coach. Which you really can look into much because it's a small school but ya you never know.

Seems like he would need a whole lot of work. There are very few instances of run blocking in that highlight film and when he is run blocking, it is nothing spectacular against guys the same size or bigger than him. He can surely block the smaller guys.

Nice to see a small timer getting a shot. I am a former division 3 left tackle and it made me happy to see something like this.
