Former Michigan great olineman Greg Skrepenak is facing some jail time for taking money on the side for a tax program.
For those of you who don't remember Skrep he was an All American lineman at Michigan and played in the NFL, Skrep owns a bar in the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton area...Yes the office.
He was also elected to be a county commissioner a few years ago and the area is under investigation stemming from a county judge scandal, he stepped down from his job last week.
It is really sad that a Michigan man got caught up with all the crap happing in the area I grew up in, most of my family still lives there and I had the pleasure of meeting Skrep a few times and we talked about UofM. Not many of us NEPA(NorthEasternPA) people get the honor of returning home as Michigan men/women. Since Rocket Ismail went to my high school Skrep was the other star from our area.To add Ron Powlus was as well but he is not a star.
Not sure what happen to the millions he made in the NFL but I guess he blew it if he is taking kick backs on the side.
