Three former Central Lakes College Raiders have been invited into NFL training camps.
· Frank Mays, CLC Defensive End 2010-11 (All-American in 2011), from Bemidji.
· Stoney Burns, CLC Cornerback 2010 (All-American in 2010), from Orlando, Fla.
· Robert Howell, CLC Defensive Tackle 2010-11, from Minneapolis.
“It is exciting to see graduates of Central Lakes College and the Raider Football Program continue to pursue their dreams of professional football with such great success,” said Greg Medeck, head football coach at CLC. “These young men have elevated their athletic careers to the highest level and each began their journey here at CLC.”
After playing for CLC, Mays transferred to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. He is now being invited to training camp by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Burns transferred to Bethel University in Tennessee following CLC. He is now being invited to training camp by the Tennessee Titans.
Howell transferred to Northern State University in South Dakota after CLC. He is now being invited to training camp by the Detroit Lions.
CLC’s football program is founded on providing a valuable and rewarding experience where young men can develop and grow academically and athletically while preparing for their next opportunity in life, Medeck said.
“These young men have worked hard to continue to chase success in their lives' and we are very proud of their great accomplishments,” he said.
