After suffering a torn PCL in October, 2017, against the Carolina Panthers, Maragos, an NFL special teams standout for the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles, announced his retirement from football as he underwent yet another surgery to repair his knee. 

Maragos transfered from Racine Park High School to Racine Horlick High his senior year in 2004. He was a walk on receiver at Western Michigan, then later played for the Wisconsin Badgers, along with Houston Texans defensive end J.J.

Can’t wait to see the next steps for you and your family!”: READ MORE
