DT Ashaad Mabry Signs with NFL’s Carolina Panthers

Even though the inaugural series has come and gone, it’s still an exciting time here at YCF HQ. Especially with all of the announcements around former players receiving NFL mini-camp invites and being named to NFL and CFL rosters!
Defensive Lineman, Ashaad Mabry was recently signed by the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. Ashaad’s story prior to YCF was already an interesting one, and now with a spot on an NFL roster, it gets even better.
Mabry started his college career with well-known powerhouse Oklahoma State. But it was a commitment to his mother’s health that brought him back to his hometown and the University of Texas at San Antonio. At UTSA, he was a member of the programs “original 18” in their inaugural season in 2010.
After graduating in 2014, Ashaad was signed by the NFL’s New Orleans Saints where he was a member of the practice squad for 2 seasons. After being cut in 2017, he worked his way back, using opportunities like Your Call Football to be seen by NFL scouts.
It wasn’t long before the Carolina Panthers came knocking and offered him a roster spot for the upcoming 2018 season. Mabry will likely play Defensive Tackle for the Panthers.
If you’re a fan of the Panthers or happen to see one of their games on this fall, keep an eye out for #72, Ashaad Mabry.
