FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Playing in the National Football League is the dream for so many young athletes, especially from Northeast Indiana.
Whether their names are called in the NFL Draft or contracts are signed in free agency, a number of promising prospects have come from the area. 2012 is no different.
Indiana wide receiver Dre Muhammad and Nebraska wide receiver Brandon Kinnie are two pursuing their dreams of playing at the highest level. The two have worked for months--often twice a day--in pursuit of the NFL.
Muhammad is well-remembered for his days on the gridiron and hardwood for Harding High School. After a redshirt season at Purdue, Muhammad finished his collegiate career at IU.
Kinnie grew up in Fort Wayne, before leaving for Kansas City in high school. His path took him to a stint at Fort Scott Community College, and eventually the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
While both have different treks, but a similar dream to get the call from an NFL franchise.
Muhammad, Kinnie and AWP CEO & President Michael Ledo join Tommy Schoegler and Kent Hormann on Sound Off to discuss the fruitful process the two prospects have taken to make their dreams come true.
