Armstrong invited to NFL Combine
The National Football League recently released its list of draft prospects for the 2014 NFL Combine, and for the first time in team history, the Grand Valley State University football team will be represented.
Senior center Matt Armstrong will be one of 50 offensive linemen to work out at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., from Feb. 22 through Feb. 25. He was one of 13 players from the NCAA Division II invited to the combine.
Armstrong was the 2013 Rimington Award winner as the top DII offensive center in the nation and was also a runner-up for the Gene Upshaw Award as the top DII interior lineman in the country.
The Lansing, Mich., product was named a First-Team All-American by the AFCA, Daktronics, Inc., the Associated Press Little America Team, Don Hansen’s Football Gazette and D2Football.com.
There are five former Lakers currently on NFL rosters: Brandon Carr, Dan Skuta, Cameron Bradfield, Tim Lelito and Charles Johnson.
