May 5, 2010

Two former players for the University of San Diego Toreros attended the New York Giants' rookie minicamp this past weekend. Ben Hannula and Mitch Ryan both last played for the Toreros during the 2008 season.

Hannula attended the Giants camp as a cornerback, but for the Toreros he played on both sides of the ball in multiple positions. During his senior campaign in 2008 Hannula saw all of his time on offense. He attempted and completed all four passes he threw from the quarterback position with 2 touchdowns. He was the second leading receiver on the team with 48 receptions and 515 yards to go along with his 6 receiving touchdowns. During Hannula's junior season he played on defense in all 11 games and had 39 tackles to go along with 3 interceptions and 4 break-ups. Hannula was named All-PFL second team offense in 2006 as a wide receiver and All-PFL second team defense as a defensive back in 2007.

Ryan who was limited his senior year to only 6 games due to injury, still recorded 3 touchdowns and 192 yards on the 2008 season. His junior year he caught 15 balls for 219 yards and 4 touchdowns. In 2008 he was named All-PFL first team as a tight end.

Hannula and Ryan join former teammates, Josh Johnson (Tampa Bay), John Matthews, (Indianapolis), Eric Bakhtiari (Tennessee) and Gabriel Derricks (Atlanta) who are currently with NFL teams.
