KYLE FRIEND WANTS TO BE ANOTHER NFL SURVIVOR

Al Thompson

Friend was deemed too short for major college football coming out of Mechanicsburg (PA) High School in 2011 where he was a two-time first team All-State lineman. But he was generously listed at 6-foot-2 and no D-1 schools came calling except Temple.
Friend proved the big schools wrong by becoming a four-year starter for the Owls and the face of head coach Matt Rhule’s program turnaround from doormat to national relevance.
Friend is hoping to find a home in Pittsburgh with the Steelers and prove all the teams that passed on him were wrong.
