The Board of Directors of the NFL Alumni Association – Philadelphia Chapter proudly congratulates Jon Runyan Jr., taken in this year’s NFL draft. Runyan, Jr. will join the Green Bay Packers as an offensive lineman.
“We welcome Jon, Jr. to the NFL family and he will be a very strong addition to the Packers’ team,” says Lee Woodall, President, NFL Alumni – Philadelphia Chapter. “Proudly, Jon, Jr. is the son of Jon Runyan, who is also our chapter’s Vice President of the Board of Directors.”
As a former Michigan star and NFL Pro Bowler the “older” Jon Runyan is the VP of the Board of Directors for the NFL Alumni – Philadelphia Chapter, and also serves as the NFL Vice President of Policy and Rules Administration. Runyan, Sr. has served in the U.S. House of Representatives for two terms.
The younger Runyan, a Moorestown, New Jersey native, played high school football at St. Joseph’s in Pennsylvania, earning all-state notice his senior year. University of Michigan Wolverines signed the legacy pick, though he had to wait through a redshirt season in 2015 and made only one appearance the following year. Runyan played in nine games as a sophomore, starting for the first time in the team’s Outback Bowl appearance. He ascended to first-team All-Big Ten status in 2018, starting all 13 games at left tackle. Runyan did the same in 2019, again garnering first-team all-conference honors for the Wolverines.
