Dallas Bollema Invited to Try Out for Vikings
MAY 14, 2014, ALBQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO - Former Lobos linebacker Dallas Bollema has the chance to become a Minnesota Viking, with an invite to try out with the team in Minnesota the weekend following the 2014 NFL draft.
An Artesia, NM, native, Bollema was a team captain, two-time All-Mountain West honorable mention, and completed his college career at UNM with 290 stops, which places him as the number 20 all-time on their tackle leaderboard.
'Honestly I'm just excited for the opportunity,' said Bollema on the upcoming tryout. 'I just want to get out there and do what I do best, and hopefully I'll turn a few heads in the process.'
Bollema follows in the NFL footsteps of recent former Lobo linebacker, Quincy Black (2007 - 3rd round).
Bollema's NFL agent, James Peterson, shared his joy over his client's shot at a spot in the NFL.
'Dallas is an incredibly smart player, and can really add depth to any team,' said Peterson. 'I know that's what he's looking to do with the Vikings. I think he'd be a great starter for their special teams, and will eventually earn a roster spot.'
With a shot at making his NFL dreams a reality, Bollema plans on giving it his all to earn his spot.
