Josh Letuligasenoa had a solid weekend at the Green Bay Packers rookie minicamp.

The Elk Grove High School graduate’s performance at the two-day camp in Ashwaubenon, Wis., earned him a training-camp contract and one of three available spots on Green Bay’s 90-man roster.

“I didn’t really believe it when it happened,” Letuligasenoa said hours after signing the deal, according to a media release from Cal Poly, where he played college ball. “I still have a lot of work to do. I made the roster. Now I have to keep working.”

Letuligasenoa, who played mostly defensive end at Cal Poly, said most of the drills he worked as an outside linebacker.

Letuligasenoa will finish requirements for his bachelor’s degree in industrial technology this quarter and is scheduled to graduate in June. He will attempt to make the Packers final 53-man active roster when training camp beings on July 26.

Letuligasenoa recorded 66 tackles during his senior season, including 9 1/2 for a loss and 3 1/2 sacks. He had three passes defended.
