Gary Tobius Ellerson (born July 17, 1963, in Albany, Georgia,) is a former American football player with the University of Wisconsin–Madison, the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions. He currently works as a sports-talk radio host on WSSP in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as part of The Big Show with Josh Vernier and Steve Fifer.
Ellerson started his pro-career as a running back in 1984 with the Memphis Showboats of the United States Football League, where he was a teammate of Reggie White. He re-entered the NFL Draft in 1985 and was taken in the 7th round by the Packers. He spent the 1985 and 1986 seasons in Green Bay before being released during training camp of the 1987 season.
