Creative punt returner gets chance in the NFL. Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi never played high school football, never played NCAA football, yet has found an opportunity to play in the NFL. He did, however, play college football at Phoenix College for two years.
He was spectacular in his two years, yet no NCAA teams or pro scouts reached out. Damon took the initiative to max out a credit card to try out and contact coaches across the country at the NCAA level. After exhausting resources and getting turned down everywhere, he found his way into the Cleveland Browns camp. This was a camp he was not actually invited to, but a little creativity helped him sneak in.
The Browns liked him and gave him a long-shot opportunity.
WHAT A MOMENT 😭
