Hillsdale's Holmes and Weatherhead wait in Football Limbo

The 2011 NFL Draft has come and gone. Unfortunately for a couple of Chargers, the Lockout is seriously delaying their opportunities to show a franchise their abilities.

By this time last season we were celebrating Jared Veldheer's selection by the Raiders as well as the mini-camp invites extended to AJ Kegg, Mark Petro, and Drew Berube. We should be extending WR Andre Holmes and QB Troy Weatherhead the same congratulations and good luck as both are likely to sign now as undrafted or priority free agents. The labor unrest in the NFL is delaying that process as teams cannot sign UDA's until after an agreement is reached.

Now the two...and every other pro football hopeful not hearing his name called this weekend must continue to hone is skills and keep a sharp eye on the court rooms where injunctions, stays, and appeals are all being bantered about. Unlike most soon-to-graduate young men, their futures are a bit muddled right now. The call could come tomorrow or in two months.

Congratulations anyway to these fine young men. Thanks for the memories you made for us in Charger Blue and may you have the chance to make many more football memories.
