Another former YCF’er will be playing on Sundays this fall. Wes Saxton, out of the University of South Alabama, has signed a contract with the NFL’s Detroit Lions!
Wes came to YCF as a late addition with plenty of pro experience. After stints with the New York Jets, Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills, he was looking for another chance to prove to pro teams that he can stretch the field and be a playmaker.
He did just that, making plays like this 51-yard catch and run, shedding tacklers on his way to a near-score just before halftime.
At the University of South Alabama, Saxton’s best season came in 2013 when he caught 50 passes for 635 yards.
The Lions had some turnover at Tight End in the offseason so it’s no surprise seeing them explore some new options at the position. Best of luck to Wes this season with Detroit!
