PUEBLO, Colo. (May 8, 2018) - Former All-American Ty McCulley (Pueblo, Colo.) of the Colorado State University-Pueblo football team signed an undrafted free agent contract with the National Football League's Washington Redskins April 30 following an outstanding career on the offensive line with the Pack. He is set to compete in the team's Rookie Minicamp May 11-14.
"My family and I embraced this process together and I have nothing but love and excitment about the opportunity," McCulley said. "I want to go out there and compete, show that I belong and represent my school and my city."
McCulley becomes the 19th player from the ThunderWolves to earn an NFL contract or camp invite since the program re-booted in 2008. CSU-Pueblo touts four former student-athletes on current NFL rosters.
"My time at CSU-Pueblo taught me the epitome of putting my head down and going to work," McCulley said. "I'm greatful to have become a better man and football player through that program. It definitely tought me life lessons that I will continue to use throughout my life. I want to represent the guys in the program that have set the stepping stones in making all this possible. I'm thankful I wore CSU-Pueblo across my chest."
