Hoyte attended Chamberlain High School, where as a senior he posted 153 tackles (98 solo) and 5 sacks, while helping the team reach the Class 5A state championship game. He received All-state honors as a junior and senior and was an All-conference selection three straight years.
He accepted a scholarship from North Carolina State University, where he was a three-year starter at linebacker. Even though he came off the field in passing situations, he registered 93 tackles as a junior and 79 tackles as a senior. He was part of a defense that included future NFL players Manny Lawson and Mario Williams on the defensive side.
On May 3, 2006, he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Dallas Cowboys. After earning a roster spot as a reserve linebacker and a solid special teams prospect, although he hadn't play the position since high school, he was converted into a fullback and started 5 games. The next year, he had 9 starts at fullback, but also missed 6 games with a neck injury. On February 28, 2008, he was released to make room for linebacker Zach Thomas, after he appeared in 22 games (14 starts) during his two years with the team.
Kansas City Chiefs
On March 3, 2008, the Kansas City Chiefs claimed him off waivers. During training camp, the team played him at middle linebacker and was released before the start of the season due to a neck injury.
