Like most sporting events that include large masses of people, NFL pro bowls have been canceled across the country.
The cancelations and postponements affect the NFL organizations, but the also affect the athletes who were counting on getting seen at pro days. A former Andrews quarterback is one of the latter.
Jase Hammack graduated from Andrews in 2015 before playing college ball at Abilene Christian and then the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. The quarterback helped lead the Crusaders to a National Championship back in 2018.
Now, Hammack wants a shot at the pros. He has gained some interest from some NFL and CFL teams, and was hoping to showcase his talents at a few pro day camps. But with the cancelations, Hammack said he is primarily playing the waiting game.
The former Mustang said he began training with a few of his former teammates shortly after graduating, and was initially a little frustrated with the cancelations.
“We saw a lot of improvement so we were excited to you know hit the field and kind of show what we can do…” he said.
However, Hammack said he understands the reasoning and has been working out on his own at home in the meantime. He said teams and organizations have asked players to film their own “pro days” and send the videos in.
