FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Zach Terrell and Seth Coate took different routes in college after being teammates at Homestead. Now, they’re heading to the NFL.
Coate accepted an invitation to attend Arizona Cardinals minicamp. The wide receiver stayed in Fort Wayne and helped lead Saint Francis to an NAIA National Championship last season. Coate caught 83 passes for 1,693 yards and 25 touchdowns last season for the Cougars. He attended Ball State’s pro day last month.
Terrell is signing as an undrafted free agent with the Baltimore Ravens. The quarterback went to Western Michigan and led the Broncos to a 13-1 record last season which included a trip to the Cotton Bowl.
Like Terrell, current Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco also attended a small college. He went to Delaware.
Neither Terrell or Coate were drafted by an NFL team over the weekend, but both will get a chance to play pro ball.
