Vancouver College grad lines up NFL career?

Brody McKnight hopes to land a job as a professional place-kicker
Former University of Montana Grizzlies' kicker Brody McKnight is carried off the field by his teammates after kicking the game-winning field goal against Portland State. Special to The B.C. Catholic.
The NFL draft, April 26-28, could have some Vancouver content if place-kicker Brody McKnight is picked. I recently talked to the Vancouver College alum about his football plans and how his faith drives him in everything that he does:
The last time a Vancouver College alumnus played in the NFL was in 1948. Now, 64 years later, local kicking phenom Brody McKnight hopes he'll be the first VC grad to follow in Ed Ryan's cleats. (Ryan played offensive end for the Pittsburgh Steelers.)

Already taken in the first round of the CFL draft by the Montreal Alouettes, McKnight hopes an NFL team will draft him when their event is held April 26-28.
