CAMPAIGN 2016: Hillary Clinton Chooses Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine As Running Mate (Full Story)

Broncos’ Ronnie Hillman Once Played For Snoop Dog

DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman was the guest on Xfinity Monday Live this week.

Hillman played his college ball at San Diego State and he played youth football for a fellow by the name of Calvin Broadus — a.k.a. Snoop Dog, who recently changed his name to Snoop Lion.

“He wanted to give up the Snoop Dog because it’s known for the gangster life. So now he’s a peaceful guy … like Bob Marley,” Hillman said.

Hillman said Snoop knows the game of football.

“He actually oversees things. It was his team but he had coaches that actually coached,” he said. “So we just traveled and went and played people, like famous people.”

He said he doesn’t really keep in touch with Snoop anymore except through Twitter and other social media.

“We don’t call each other every day.”
