Penn Hills’ Treyvon Hester Saves Season for the Eagles

Penn Hills’ Treyvon Hester Saves Season for the Eagles

Treyvon Hester started the NFL season not knowing if he’d be on an NFL roster. Now his name will be etched in Philadelphia Eagles playoff history for “The Deflection.”

Video replay shows that Hester was able to get his fingers on the game-winning field goal attempt by Cody Parkey, as the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles defeated the Chicago Bears, 16-15.

Hester (6-foot-2, 300 pounds) is a second year defensive tackle from Penn Hills who attended college at Toledo.

After getting drafted by the Raiders in the seventh-round last year, he remained on their roster the entire season and played in 14 games (one start).

This year, he appeared to have made the team again but then was cut on Labor Day after they signed veteran defensive tackle Brian Price.

It didn’t take long for Hester to get work as later that week. He signed on with the Eagles practice squad. On Oct. 2, Hester was promoted to the Eagles’ 53-man roster and remained there for the rest of the season.

It’s a good thing they kept him, because the 2012 Penn Hills grad’s big play has given the Eagles a chance to defend their championship.

Next up for Hester and the Eagles is a matchup against Drew Brees and the top-seeded New Orleans Saints.
