Former Pima College running back Sirgeo Hoffman signed a free agent contract on Saturday night with the Arizona Cardinals.
Hoffman, who came to Pima from Gresham (Ore.) High School in 2015, played for the Aztecs in the 2015 and 2016 seasons, when he totaled 609 yards on 159 carries in 17 career games with six touchdowns.
“He was a hard worker who never gave up on turning a dream into a goal into reality. He was a great Aztec,” Pima interim athletic director and former Pima football coach Jim Monaco said.
Hoffman returned to his home state when he signed a letter of intent to Portland State in 2017. He compiled 1,068 career yards (769 yards last season) and 10 touchdowns for the Vikings.
He was named Academic All-Big Sky Conference in 2018.
