TWO DUKES GOING TO LATROBE!!!

For the first time in program history Duquesne football will have two players going to Latrobe for Steelers summer camp (unless you want to count the time Terry Russell and I drove up to watch practice ) 😄 Seriously,  certainly in the earlier years there were multiple Duquesne Dukes in  Steelers camp but I don't believe since the late 40s   I spoke with both of them this week and Christian Kuntz is in a great position being an unchallenged incumbent for the first time in his career and while he has always believed he could play in the NFL, he now knows it! Jake Dixon looks great and like Christian has been relentless in his workouts and also told me he's going to see some reps at guard too.I think he's as athletic as any of their OL and if he can make the practice squad as a swingman OL that would be fantastic! The program keeps moving forward! Go Christian and Jake and Go Dukes!

Article on Kuntz / Dixon (and Hayward) participating in the Steelers camp versus being on the other side of the rope.

Jake Dixon was cut by the Steelers today. The handwriting was on the wall when he didn’t see the field in the Seahawks game. A heck of an experience for him; perhaps he can continue his football career in Canada or the USFL.

Pro football is so tough to break into. It's like there is no "minor league" to develop like baseball, hockey, or soccer. Basketball players have G League or other countries. CFL has quotas for non-Canadian players. Spring leagues come and go. I wish Jake luck.

Re: TWO DUKES GOING TO LATROBE!!!

Kind of surprised to see him cut so soon considering their OL isnt exactly strong.   

I also saw on twitter some DU football player is joining WWE.
