NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKBW) — Even though he didn't get drafted this weekend, a former Canisius High School star's NFL dreams are still alive.
"Sacrificing so much, having it be a dream of mine since I was a kid, and having it turn into reality, it was awesome," former Ohio State kicker Blake Haubeil said. "I was left speechless."
The Western New York native has signed a contract with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent.
Haubeil graduated from Canisius High School in 2017 and played 50 games for Ohio State, kicking the second-longest field goal in school history at 55 yards.
"I'm a strong believer that an opportunity is only an opportunity if you take advantage of it," Haubeil said on Sunday. "So my goal, I wrote it down simply: Blake Haubeil is going to make an NFL roster."
Haubeil will compete with Stephen Gostkowski for the starting kicker job with the Titans.
