CMU Football Hosts Annual Pro Day

MT. PLEASANT – Since the Central Michigan football program ended its season in December, Chippewa seniors have been working out to improve their chances of catching the eye of a professional team.

CMU held its annual pro day on Monday, giving athletes an opportunity to work out in front of NFL and CFL scouts.

Most eyes were on CMU quarterback Cooper Rush, who was one of many players from CMU, Ferris State and Northern Michigan looking to make an impression.

"I was solid,” Rush said. “I got to show a bit more timing here than at the combine.  But, I drove the ball well, and you know, we’ll see what happens."

"I’m willing to do anything, whatever it takes, to get to that level, and stay on that level. I’m willing to do anything,” added CMU safety Tony Annese.

Players now await invitations for individual workouts with teams prior to next month’s NFL draft.
