Know your Chiefs – Joe Thuney

 4 replies

Joseph Thuney was born November 18, 1992, in Centerville, Ohio.  His parents are Mike and Beth Thuney and has three other siblings.  He attended High School at Archbishop Alter High School, where as a senior he was the Greater Catholic League Lineman of the Year as well as the president of his senior class.  His high school football team won two D4 state championships.  He chose to attend college at NC State.

He played sparingly his freshmen year and was projected to be the starting center his redshirt sophomore year but ended up starting the season at right tackle for the first game, right guard the second, and left tackle the rest of the season.  He started at left guard his junior year and left tackle his senior year.  He was the first NC State player to be named an All-American since 1979.  He graduated from NC State cum laude in just three years.

The story was that when he took the Wonderlic test he intentionally missed some answers, so he didn’t come off as too smart.  He was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2016 draft by the evil empire.  In 2021, he joined the forces of good and signed with the Chiefs with a five-year deal.
