Minot State's Sebastin Gutierrez gets a "shot of a lifetime"
Minot State has had only two players in their school's history sign with an NFL team, Sebastin Gutierrez just made it three. The lineman who played 4 seasons with the Beavers signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent. This talented athlete has also played the role of a wide receiver and tight end. Kfyrtv.com reported that a determined Gutierrez had this to say “It’s a feeling that you can’t beat. It’s a sense of accomplishment, but the work’s not done. I still have a lot more to do,” - he also went on to give thanks to his coaches, teammates, and the whole city of Minot for supporting him. We will all keep our eyes on him in the fall as he tries to make the team.
