As the Ashland University Eagles get ready to host Wayne State University on Saturday evening at Jack Miller Stadium, former Eagle Jeris Pendleton, who was drafted in the seventh round of the April NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars has made the squad and will wear jersey number 98.  The 6'2" 315lb defensive tackle is prepping for his first pro game at Minnesota this Sunday against the Vikings. 

At age 28, Pendleton was one of the oldest players ever drafted by an NFL team.  He was also the first player to be drafted out of AU since 1972 when LB Bill Overmyer was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles.  Pendleton also becomes the first AU player to make an NFL team since former Ashland U. kicker Tim Seder made the Dallas Cowboys in 2000 and again in 2001.  Ironically, Seder also kicked briefly for Jacksonville in 2002.
