Former Michigan offensive lineman Elliott Mealer played in 26 games in two seasons for Brady Hoke after Hoke was hired away from San Diego State in 2011. Mealer was a backup for Hoke in 2011, but was inserted into the starting lineup at center for his fifth-year senior season under Hoke, so it’s safe to say he knows his former head coach pretty well.

I think this video that Mealer posted onto his Instagram account gives further evidence of that,

That is an extremely accurate impression. For reference, here’s a clip from a recent Hoke press conference.

Pretty well-executed, right? I think so.

Mealer, who currently plays for the San Jose Sabercats of the Arena Football League, had a brief stint with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He was also featured in an episode of ESPN’s E:60, which chronicled a tragic car accident that resulted in the death of his father and girlfriend and the paralysis of his brother.

It’s worth your time.
