Sometime in 2004 - An alternative view of Gary's NFL career, at least in Indianapolis. Part of a larger article entitled "Headlines You Will Never See." Included here because it's funny.
"Former Colts QB Gary Hogeboom Wins Pay-Per-View Tough-man Competition
I always found a way to get a good grade in middle school Health class, and much of that is due to Colts' QB Gary Hogeboom. He injured a different body part every time he was tackled. In the first four games following the 1987strike, Hogeboom's injury report became the perfect cheat sheet for any anatomy test. However, Hogeboom did not leave the game without a legacy. Mike Tyson told Flipside in our exclusive interview that the Colts' wayward QB was his primary inspiration for the 'Glass Joe' character on his much ballyhooed 'Punchout.'" - Devon Durrant, FlipSide Sports
September, 2001 - In a "where are they now?" article in Texas Monthly, Brian Sweany looks up former Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks:
"Gary Hogeboom (1980-1985) is a real estate developer in Grand Rapids, Michigan." - Brian D. Sweany, Texas Monthly
1985-1985 - Cowboys quarterback, which got him attention:
"Gary Hogeboom: Hogeboom was the opening day starter in 1984. To date, Gary Hogeboom and Steve Pelleur are the only QBs to have just one opening day start. Hogeboom got the nod over Danny White because of pressure on the Cowboys to shake the NFC Championship game losses. Hogeboom had taken over for an injured Danny White during the 1983 NFC Championship game and played well enough to warrant more opportunities. He led the Cowboys to a victory on opening day in 1984 and had a very nice game. Hogeboom was injured before the 1984 season was over and Danny White once again took the reigns. Danny White played much better than Hogeboom during the 1984 season and won his starting job back. To avoid even more controversy, Hogeboom was traded to the Colts after the 1985 season." - CowboyCards.com
1980-1989 - NFL quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, Indianapolis Colts, and Phoenix Cardinals. Notably, according to the Pro Football reference, "Gary Hogeboom never finished in the top 10 in any major category. Gary Hogeboom is not in the all-time top 50 in any major category."
1976-1979 - Lettered in football for Central Michigan University. Inducted into the CMU Athletic Hall of Fame in 1989.
