Early life

Kuhn is the son of John Kuhn and Patti Duffy. He was a four-sport athlete at Dover Area High School in York County, Pennsylvania, playing football, basketball, baseball and track. In football, he played both offense and defense for the Eagles, rushing for 2,242 yards and 20 touchdowns while also playing inside linebacker. He was the first Dover player to rush for over 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons.[1][2][3] Kuhn did not receive any Division I scholarship offers to play college football.[4]

College career

A Northeast Region finalist for the Harlon Hill Trophy given to the top player in NCAA Division II as a senior, Kuhn was selected to play in the 2005 Whataburger Cactus Bowl on January 7 as a Division II all-star for the North team. He was named PSAC Western Division Offensive Player of the Year in 2003 and was a three-time First-Team All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Western Division selection.

In 2004, the Raiders won their first PSAC Western Division Championship since 1988 and advanced to the NCAA Division II national football championship second round with a 10-2 record, marking the team's first 10-win regular season since 1981.[3]

Kuhn holds 27 school records and six PSAC records. He finished his career with 4,685 yards rushing, 910 carries, 53 touchdowns, 5,300 all-purpose yards and 26 games with at least 100 yards rushing, all school records. Kuhn led the team in rushing for the third-straight season as a senior and is the only player in team history to total over 1,000 yards rushing in three-straight seasons.

A standout in the classroom, Kuhn was a First-Team ESPN The Magazine/College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America in both 2003 and 2004 and was named First-Team Academic All-District II three-straight years. He was also chosen as a PSAC Fall Top Ten Award winner as both a junior and senior, the first Shippensburg male student-athlete to have received the award twice.

Kuhn ranked 17th in Division II in rushing yards per game and was 34th in all-purpose yards. He was chosen as a First-Team American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) All-American and Third-Team Associated Press (AP) Little All-American.[3]

Kuhn graduated with a chemistry degree in December 2004.[2] During the summer of 2003, he had worked as a lab technician for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and during the summer of 2004 he worked for Johnson & Johnson.

In 2013, he was inducted into the Shippensburg University athletic hall of fame by his long time friend and roommate Kevin Boyle.[5]

Professional career

Pittsburgh Steelers

2005

He was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent on April 29, 2005. He was released prior to the season, but on November 30 was assigned to the team's practice squad for the final five games.

2006

Kuhn won a Super Bowl ring on February 5, 2006 as a member of the Steelers in Super Bowl XL with their 21–10 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

After spending the first eight weeks of the 2006 season on the Steelers' practice squad, Kuhn was signed to the Steelers active roster on October 31, 2006. During the 2006 season he appeared in nine games, with two carries for 18 yards, including a 16-yard run on his first NFL carry versus the Cleveland Browns. He added a two-yarder against the Carolina Panthers. He also caught one pass for 15 yards, also against Carolina, and had seven special teams tackles for the season.[3]

On October 6, 2006, he was selected in the 8th round of the Arena Football League's Expansion Draft by the New Orleans VooDoo. His rights had been owned by the San Jose SaberCats, although he never played for them or in the Arena League.

Green Bay Packers

2007

In 2007, Kuhn was signed to the active roster of the Green Bay Packers on September 2, a day after being released by the Steelers. He joined Rob Davis as Shippensburg University graduates on the Packers roster. Davis has subsequently retired and joined the Packers front office staff. Kuhn played in all 16 games for the Packers, primarily on special teams and as a blocking fullback, starting one game, on December 30 versus the Detroit Lions. He had no carries for the year, with two passes caught for seven yards. However, he recorded 11 special teams tackles.[6]

The Packers re-signed Kuhn, who was an exclusive rights free agent, on March 19, 2008.

2008

In 2008, he again played in all 16 games, including three starts. For the season, he ran eight times for 10 yards and caught four passes for 21 yards and scored his first two NFL touchdowns. The first was on October 12 on a one-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to put the Packers up 24–10 on the Seahawks. He scored his first rushing touchdown on a one-yard run on November 24 against the New Orleans Saints to put the Packers up 7–0. Also for the season, he recorded 12 special teams tackles.[3]

2009

In 2009, Kuhn played in 14 games, including six starts, rushing eight times for 18 yards with seven receptions for 47 yards, and he scored three touchdowns. Two came in one game on September 27 against the St. Louis Rams, with a 1-yard TD run and a 10-yard pass from Rodgers.[6] He recorded 11 special teams tackles.[3]

2010

In 2010, Kuhn played in all 16 games again, with two starts, and put up his most productive season to date. Kuhn attended his first Pro Bowl, while he rushed 84 times for 281 yards and four touchdowns and had 15 receptions for 97 yards for another two touchdowns. He recorded seven special teams tackles.

He also appeared in all four Packers postseason games with one start, with a total of six rushes for eight yards and one touchdown and six receptions for 53 yards and one touchdown. He also became the first Packer to have both a rushing and a receiving touchdown in one playoff game since James Lofton in 1983.[3]

2011

In 2011, he appeared in all 16 games for the fourth time in five seasons, with three starts. He was named a starting fullback for the Pro Bowl and was named second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press. He rushed 30 times for 78 yards with 15 receptions for 77 yards, and matched his career high with six total touchdowns. In the Packers NFC Divisional game versus the New York Giants, he scored the Packers' first touchdown with an eight-yard catch from Rodgers. He left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury.[3]

2012

In 2012, Kuhn played 14 games (missing two games with a hamstring injury) with three starts, rushing 23 times for 63 yards and tying his career high with 15 receptions for a career-high 148 yards while adding three special teams tackles.

In the NFC Wild Card game versus the Minnesota Vikings, he scored touchdowns on consecutive possessions, one via the ground and one on a pass. He was named a Pro Bowl alternate.[3]

2013

In 2013, Kuhn played in 15 games with six starts. He rushed 10 times for 38 yards with one touchdown and caught 13 passes for 81 yards.[6] He gained national recognition in the season's finale versus the Chicago Bears to decide the NFC North championship and a berth in the playoffs. With the Packers trailing 28–27, facing a fourth-and-8 from the Bears 48 yard line, it appeared that Bears defensive end Julius Peppers would sack Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, Kuhn quickly shifted across the formation and made a cut block on Peppers, allowing Rodgers to escape and throw a game-winning touchdown pass to Randall Cobb.[7]

During the January 5 wild card game against the San Francisco 49ers, Kuhn had a one-yard run touchdown run in the fourth quarter to give the Packers a 17–13 lead. However, the 49ers eventually won the game, 23–20. This marked the 5th consecutive postseason in which Kuhn has scored either a passing or rushing TD.

2014

Kuhn became a free agent after the 2013 season; however, on April 3, 2014, he signed a one-year contract with the Packers.[8] In the regular season, he played in all 16 games with 24 carries for 85 yards and one touchdown, plus four receptions for 23 yards.[9] He was named 2014 first-team All-Pro fullback by the Associated Press.[10]

2015

On April 13, 2015, Kuhn re-signed with the Packers on a one-year deal.[11]

New Orleans Saints

On August 5, 2016, Kuhn was signed by the New Orleans Saints.[12]

During a Week 3 loss, Kuhn scored his first touchdown as a Saint on a 3-yard rush against the Atlanta Falcons. On October 2, 2016, he scored 2 rushing touchdowns and added his first receiving touchdown as a Saint in a 35–34 comeback win over the San Diego Chargers. [13]

On February 3, 2017, Kuhn re-signed a one-year contract with the Saints.[14] On September 3, 2017, Kuhn was released by the Saints, but was re-signed three days later. He was again released on September 21, 2017, but re-signed four-days later.[15] On September 28, 2017, he was placed on injured reserve after tearing his biceps in practice.[16]

Retirement

On March 6, 2019, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst announced that Kuhn had informed the team of his decision to retire, and his wish to do so as a Packer.[17]

Personal life

Kuhn's wife, Lindsey (Incorvati), is a former soccer player and sprinter on the track team at Shippensburg University. They live in Wisconsin together.[1][5]

Kuhn is active in Packers charitable events and is a two-time participant in the NFL's Business Management and Entrepreneur Program at the Harvard Business School and the Wharton School of Business.[3]

Kuhn became a fan favorite in Green Bay. Whenever Kuhn carried the ball, Packers' fans called out his surname "Kuuuuuuhhhhhn," which is sometimes mistaken for booing. This continued during his time as a New Orleans Saint. The chant originated at Shippensburg each time he touched the ball, but Kuhn gained national fame after scoring three touchdowns in week 16 of 2010 against the New York Giants. The Packers won, 45–17.[1]

In 2013, he co-starred in a national Campbell's Soup commercial with teammate Clay Matthews, with both in full Packers uniforms.[19]

2008 Green Bay Packers season

The 2008 Green Bay Packers season was the 90th season overall and 88th in the National Football League. They looked to continue success after posting a 13–3 record in 2007, but they failed to do so and finished the season with a losing 6–10 record. Until the 2017 season, this was the last season in which the Packers did not qualify for the playoffs.

2009 Green Bay Packers season

The 2009 Green Bay Packers season was the 91st season over all and their 89th in the National Football League. The Packers finished with an 11–5 record but lost in the wild card round of the playoffs to the Arizona Cardinals. They scored a franchise record 461 points (currently the third best behind the 2011 and 2014 teams) besting the 1996 Super Bowl team's 456. Charles Woodson was named Defensive Player of the Year for the season, leading the league with 9 interceptions. The defense ranked 2nd overall in the league (1st against the run; 2nd against the pass).

2010 Green Bay Packers season

The 2010 Green Bay Packers season was the 92nd season overall and their 90th season in the National Football League. Although they finished with only a respectable 10–6 record, good for a second-place finish in the NFC North, the Packers never lost a game by more than four points, and never trailed by more than seven the entire season, becoming the only team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to accomplish this. All six of their regular season losses were by a combined 20 points. They entered the playoffs as the NFC's sixth seed. After defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 21–16 in the Wild Card round, the Atlanta Falcons 48–21 in the Divisional round and long time rivals, Chicago Bears 21–14 in the NFC Championship, the team advanced to Super Bowl XLV in which they faced the AFC's 2nd seed Pittsburgh Steelers. The Packers defeated the Steelers 31–25 to win their fourth Super Bowl and 13th NFL championship. The Packers became the second overall team after the 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers, and the first NFC team, to win the Super Bowl as a sixth seed, as well as becoming the second NFC team to win three straight road playoff games (the 2007 New York Giants won three straight road games as a five seed).

The Packers offense ranked ninth in yards per game, tenth in total points, & fifth in passing yards. The defense ranked fifth in yards allowed and finished second in fewest points allowed (240, second best in team history), sacks (47), and interceptions (24), while also limiting quarterbacks to a 67.2 passer rating, first in the league.

2011 All-Pro Team

There are three 2011 All-Pro Teams—one each named by the Associated Press (AP), Pro Football Writers Association (PFWA), and Sporting News—for performance in the 2011 NFL season. While none of these have the official imprimatur of the NFL (whose official recognition is nomination to the 2012 Pro Bowl), they are included (separately) in the NFL Record and Fact Book. Any player selected to any of the teams can be described as an "All-Pro."

The AP team, with first- and second-team selections, was chosen by a national panel of 50 NFL writers; the Sporting News selection process uses a panel of 50 NFL coaches and executives, while the PFWA team is chosen by polling its 300+ members.

2011 Green Bay Packers season

The 2011 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 93rd season overall and their 91st in the National Football League, and the sixth under head coach Mike McCarthy. The team not only improved on their 10–6 record from a season earlier, they became just the sixth team in NFL history to win 15 games during the regular season. As of 2017, the 15–1 record stands as the best in team history. The Packers won their first 13 games of the season to extend their winning streak from the previous season to 19, the second-longest in NFL history behind the 21-game winning streak of the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004, and also tied the record for the best start to a season in NFC history that the New Orleans Saints had set in 2009. The only loss for the Packers during the regular season was a Week 15 defeat in Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs. They also became the first NFC North team to go undefeated in the division since the 1987 Chicago Bears.

Statistics site Football Outsiders calculated that the Packers were, play for play, the best team in the NFL in 2011 (though they received the second-lowest rating for a number-1 team since the 1993 San Francisco 49ers). According to the site, the Packers' offense was historically prolific, ranking as the second-best pass offense and third-best total offense since they began calculating. Furthermore, quarterback Aaron Rodgers had the fourth-most-prolific season, play by play, since calculations began and some have called it one of the most efficient seasons ever by a quarterback by setting the NFL record for highest passer rating in a season (122.5). The 2011 Packers are one of only five teams in NFL history to score 35 points or more nine times in a single season and one of only two teams to score 42 points or more in at least six games, the other being the 2013 Broncos. The Packers' 70 total touchdowns are tied with the 1984 Dolphins for the third-most touchdowns scored in a season, and their 51 total touchdown passes are tied with the 2004 Colts for second-most touchdown passes in a season. The defense was ranked last, 32nd, in the league in yards allowed and surrendered an NFL record 4,796 passing yards despite leading the league in interceptions, with 31.

With their record-setting offense, their 15–1 record, and their having home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, the Packers were aiming to repeat as Super Bowl champions, and become the first team to win back-to-back titles since the Patriots in 2003 and 2004. However, the Packers instead became the first team to finish with at least 15 victories and not win a playoff game, as they were beaten in a shocking upset by the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants 37–20 at Lambeau Field. The Packers became just the sixth team to win 15 games in the regular season, joining the 1984 49ers, 1985 Bears, 1998 Vikings, 2004 Steelers and the 2007 Patriots, who finished the regular season undefeated at 16–0. The Packers became the fourth consecutive team with at least fifteen victories to fail to win the Super Bowl.

2013 South Carolina's 1st congressional district special election

A special election for South Carolina's 1st congressional district was held on May 7, 2013, to fill the seat following the resignation of U.S. Representative Tim Scott, who was appointed to the United States Senate by Governor Nikki Haley to fill the seat previously held by Jim DeMint. DeMint resigned from the Senate on January 1, 2013, to accept a position as president of The Heritage Foundation.

The filing period for candidates lasted between January 18 and January 28, 2013. The special primary elections took place on March 19, 2013. Businesswoman Elizabeth Colbert Busch won the Democratic Party primary and Mark Sanford, the former governor of South Carolina who held the seat from 1995 to 2001, advanced to a runoff with former Charleston County Councilman Curtis Bostic for the Republican Party nomination. Prior to the runoff, 14 Republicans and one Democrat signed the "Reject the Debt" pledge put out by the nonpartisan Coalition to Reduce Spending. Curtis Bostic's refusal to sign the pledge became a campaign issue appearing in a Daily Caller editorial as well as a National Review piece authored by Deroy Murdock, which called Sanford the "taxpayer's choice" in the race. In the runoff election on April 2, Sanford defeated Bostic. Eugene Platt, a James Island Public Service Commissioner, was nominated by the South Carolina Green Party. In the general election on May 7, Sanford received 54% of the vote, beating Colbert Busch (45%) and Platt (1%).

2014 All-Pro Team

The 2014 All-Pro Teams were named by the Associated Press (AP), the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA), and the Sporting News (SN) for performance in the 2014 NFL season. While none of the All-Pro teams have the official imprimatur of the NFL (whose official recognition is nomination to the 2015 Pro Bowl), they are included in the NFL Record and Fact Book and also part of the language of the 2011 NFLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement. Any player selected to the first-team of any of the teams can be described as an "All-Pro." The AP team, with first-team and second-team selections, was chosen by a national panel of fifty NFL writers and broadcasters. The Sporting News All-NFL team is voted on by NFL players and executives and was released January 20, 2015. The PFWA team is selected by its more than 300 national members who are accredited media members covering the NFL.

2014 Green Bay Packers season

The 2014 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 96th season overall, the 94th in the National Football League, and the ninth under head coach Mike McCarthy. The team tied with four other teams for a league-best 12 wins and 4 losses, while also adding a fourth consecutive NFC North division title. The club went undefeated at home for the first time since 2011. They also led the league in scoring, with 486 points, the second-most in franchise history. It marked the first time since the 2009 season that the team had a 4,000-yard passer, two 1,000-yard receivers, and a 1,000-yard rusher. They won the divisional round playoff game against the Cowboys, but then lost the conference championship game against the Seattle Seahawks in one of the biggest collapses in NFL playoff history. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the league's Most Valuable Player.The Packers made the playoffs for the sixth straight season, tying the record set between 1993–98.

2015 Green Bay Packers season

The 2015 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 97th season overall, 95th in the National Football League, and the tenth under head coach Mike McCarthy. With a Week 15 win over the Oakland Raiders, the Packers clinched a playoff spot for the seventh consecutive season, but they failed to win their fifth consecutive NFC North title after a Week 17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings as does matching their 12-4 record from last season. As a result, the fifth-seeded Packers traveled to Washington to face the fourth-seeded Redskins in the Wild Card round. They beat the Redskins 35–18, and then traveled to Arizona for a rematch against the second-seeded Arizona Cardinals, where the Packers' season ended as they lost to the Cardinals in overtime, 20–26.

2016 Pro Bowl

The 2016 Pro Bowl (branded as the 2016 Pro Bowl presented by USAA for sponsorship reasons) was the National Football League's all-star game for the 2015 season, which was played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on January 31, 2016.

Andy Reid of the Kansas City Chiefs and Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers were selected to coach the teams due to their teams being the highest seeded teams from each conference to lose in the Divisional Round of 2015–16 NFL playoffs, which has been the convention since the 2010 Pro Bowl. On January 27, Mike McCarthy announced that he would not be coaching the Pro Bowl due to an illness and also announced that assistant head coach Winston Moss would take over head coaching duties. This was also the sixth consecutive year that the Pro Bowl took place prior to the Super Bowl. At the Pro Bowl Draft, the Chiefs' coaching staff was assigned to Team Rice, and the Packers' coaching staff was assigned to Team Irvin.The game continued the fantasy draft format that debuted with the 2014 Pro Bowl. The two teams were to be drafted and captained by two Hall of Famers, Jerry Rice (winning 2014 Pro Bowl captain) and Michael Irvin (winning 2015 Pro Bowl captain). Darren Woodson and Eric Davis served as defensive co-captains for Irvin and Rice respectively, in both cases reuniting two former teammates (Irvin and Woodson were teammates on the Dallas Cowboys from 1992 to 1999, while Rice and Davis played together with the San Francisco 49ers from 1990 to 1995). The Fantasy draft was held January 27 at 7:30 P.M. EST on ESPN2 at Wheeler Army Airfield in Wahiawa, Hawaii as part of an extension to the NFL's military appreciation campaign.

Fullback (gridiron football)

A fullback (FB) is a position in the offensive backfield in American and Canadian football, and is one of the two running back positions along with the halfback. Typically, fullbacks are larger than halfbacks and in most offensive schemes their duties are split between power running, pass catching, and blocking for both the quarterback and the other running back.Many great runners in the history of American football have been fullbacks, including Jim Brown, Marion Motley, Jim Taylor, Franco Harris, Larry Csonka, John Riggins, Christian Okoye, and Levi Jackson. However, many of these runners would retroactively be labeled as halfbacks, due to their position as the primary ball carrier; they were primarily listed as fullbacks due to their size and did not often perform the run-blocking duties expected of modern fullbacks. Examples of players who have excelled at the hybrid running-blocking-pass catching role include Mike Alstott, Daryl Johnston, and Lorenzo Neal.
