Thanks, I saw that Devante Davis WR UNLV to the Eagles and Brett Boyko OL UNLV to the Eagles as well. Davis is pretty decent, surprised he went undrafted. Penney was their best DB this past season.

You're welcome guys. I stumbled upon this site a few years ago when I was checking to see if any of my local team, UNLV players were signed. Unfortunately, this is about the only way of seeing any UNLV players to the NFL as they rarely get anyone drafted. LOL

Curtis Grant signed with my San Diego Chargers!!!!!

Born & raised in Newark.  Upon graduating high school, I worked at The Ohio State University Hospitals as a hospital aide in a Cardiac Stepdown Unit, transferred to Surgery, and finished my employment in The Surgical Intensive Care Unit. Left the hospital and started school at TOSU. Left The Ohio State after 2 years.

After leaving school, moved back to Newark and became a photographer at the newspaper where I became Photo Editor for 13 years.  It was cool getting to shoot Ohio State football games home & away as well as covering the Blue Jackets, Browns, and NHRA Drag Racing. Moved to Vegas in 2005 and haven't been back there in 7 years. I never miss a game on tv and really don't miss Ohio except when I'm watching games and wishing I was there at the game.
