Wayne Chrebet Authentic Nike Jersey JetsGo Back
Wayne Chrebet’s big break came when he was granted a walk-on opportunity with the NFL’s New York Jets, who at the time trained at Hofstra’s campus. His chances of remaining on the team for long were nothing short of astronomical: he entered training camp 11th of 11 on the Jets’ wide receiver depth chart; NFL teams rarely carry more than five receivers into the season. In an incident that would later become iconic, Chrebet was stopped and detained at the front gate on his first day of training camp by a security guard, who thought Chrebet was too small to be a real player. A Jets team official was summoned to verify he was an authorized walk-on and could enter the training complex. With a stellar performance in training camp and the preseason, Chrebet managed to make the team’s final 53-man roster, the first Hofstra alumnus to make an NFL team in three decades. He is also a member of the Jets Ring of Honor.
