(WTNH)–NFL training camps begin this week, and a couple of former UConn Husky standouts are hoping to be NFL teammates when the regular season starts.
Anthony Sherman is a lock to make the Kansas City Chiefs’ roster again. The punishing fullback and special teams player has already made his mark in five NFL seasons. Wide receiver Kashif Moore signed with KC in the offseason, and hopes to become his teammate. He’s had his shot with five other NFL teams. He hopes this one sticks.
“You’ve got to have that mentality that you’re never going to quit, and that’s something that I’ve always had in my mind, to keep that faith that I’m going to keep riding this thing until the wheels fall off,” Moore said.
As for Sherman, he says he stays in the league by making sure no one is out-working him.
“I always knew if I worked hard, the opportunity could happen, and I’ve tried to make the most of it. I just make sure that no one is out-working me in any way,” said Sherman. “I just try to keep my head to the ground and do the best I can.”
Moore is one of 13 receivers on the Chiefs pre-season roster.
