Josh Jenkins in Lions Camp

Former Big Red and Mountaineer football player Josh Jenkins is pursuing his dream of playing in the NFL.

Josh has been invited to the Detroit Lions mini camp this week. Tthe coaches want to take a look at Josh during team workouts. .And if they like what they see, he will be invited to take part in the rest of the team's off season mini camps...and that could lead to a contract and an opportunity to make Lion's roster this summer

Josh was the lineman of the year in West Virginia high school football when he played for the Big Reds. He was highly recruited, but chose WVU, .and he was a starter during his entire career in Morgantown.

2012 was his last season with the Mountaineers. He's been working out and staying in shape, and he even had a camp last summer for kids wanting to develop their games.

Now Josh hopes to take his game to the next level with the Detroit Lions.
