Brian Hoyer is one of the guys you root for.
After spending the first three seasons backing up football royalty in New England, Hoyer spent a few weeks in Pittsburgh in 2012, before finally getting a late season start for his third team on the season, the Arizona Cardinals. The Lakewood, OH native Hoyer did enough to convince Browns management that he was capable enough to back up Brandon Weeden. And now, after only two underwhelming starts for Weeden to begin the 2013 campaign, Hoyer is finally getting his shot. The loudest person in the stands this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings will be Brian Hoyer's wife Lauren Hoyer.
Lauren Hoyer, formerly Lauren Scrivens, is a native of Moore, OK. Brian and Lauren returned to OK to help with cleanup efforts following a tornado that hit Moore in May, 2013. Hoyer told the Chronicle-Telegram why he went back:
Very, very fortunate to have no injuries and everybody’s safe. Obviously damage. I know it’s tough, there’s so much devastation. But just to do my part, I feel like it’s the right thing to do, especially when it hits close like that with your wife’s family.
Brian and Lauren Hoyer were married in 2010 and have one child together.
