Albion's Kinder gets drafted by Chicago

posted by Brian Hillabush in football, sports, Albion.

Kinder was a standout running back for the Purple Eagles and was switched to wide receiver at the University of Pittsburgh. He tore his ACL during his senior year and received an injury red shirt.

He bounced back this season to catch 36 passes for 422 yards and three touchdowns.

It was reported that Kinder had worked out for Chicago and Cincinnati in the weeks prior to the NFL Draft.

Does anybody know if the kid from Pembroke (can't remember his name) who played for UB was drafted?

Chris Lauzze. He was not drafted and might get a shot to work out with some teams, but he's a center for UB so he'll have a tough time.

I'm doing well, just in the crunch now with the semester winding down. I hope to make it to some games this summer for sure! But I think I will be in Boston so it might be tough. I'll keep you posted!
