FORT WAYNE, IN. (WANE) – Former Notre Dame defensive standouts Louix Nix and Carlo Calabrese were in Fort Wayne on Sunday signing autographs for fans at FanPoint Ink in the Glennbrook Mall.
Nix – a star nose tackle for the Irish – is considered by many a lock to be first round pick in May’s NFL draft, with a chance to land in the top 15. Calabrese, a hard nosed linebacker has more of an uncertain NFL future, but had a good showing last Thursday at Notre Dame’s pro day in South Bend. Both say they are enjoying preparing for life as a professional and are excited about their football futures.
