Alumnus Andrew Zeller rises to the challenge of pro football.
Red Lion graduate Andrew Zeller has recently excelled to the next level of his athletic career.
In early May, Zeller posted on his Facebook page that he would become a Detroit Lion, signing a free agent deal the weekend of the NFL draft. An offensive lineman for the University of Maryland, Zeller is 6-foot-5 and 315 pounds.
Zeller went undrafted in the 2016 NFL draft but was happy to receive the call that he was waiting for: the call from his agent telling him he has been picked up by an NFL team.
“I anticipate a once in a lifetime opportunity that will require a strenuous challenge both mentally and physically,” said Zeller “but it is a challenge that I have dreamed of and one that I am willing to embrace.”
Coming this far was not just a walk in the park as any athlete or fan would know.
