Drew Berube named Defensive Player of the Game in Arena Football League debut

Hillsdale College's Drew Berube last made news on this site as an invitee to the Green Bay Packers mini camp, just over a year ago.

While told that he wouldn't be asked back to training camp this Fall, Berube hasn't let his football dreams fade away.

The former All-GLIAC defensive lineman recently joined former Charger teammate AJ Kegg on the roster of the Arena Football League Cleveland Gladiators.

In his first game and first start, Berube wasted little time making his name known. On the opening series, the Hillsdale High School and College star sacked Philadelphia QB Ryan Vena, forced a fumble, and recovered it to set up the Gladiators for their first score.

In the third quarter, Berube would score his first ever points in the top indoor division with a safety on kickoff coverage.

Cleveland would go on to improve to 6-3 on the year with the 59-41 win. Berube would earn defensive player of the game honors with the 2 big stops.

Kegg, who is now on injured reserve became the first ever Hillsdale product to play in the Arena Football League. So far on the season, Kegg has had one solo tackle and an assist.

Cleveland is in action next week at Arizona.
