    AMES, Iowa Coe second team D3football.com all-American Frank Weymiller wasn't sure pro day would be for him.

    Then a call came at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

    Teams had expressed interest in seeing him.

    So the defensive lineman from tiny New Albin loaded up his "old, muddy Grand Prix" and headed to Ames for the 9 a.m. workouts.

    "Not a lot of pressure; nothing to lose," said Weymiller, the Iowa Conference defensive player of the year. "I kind of had the idea I might be getting in, but it was getting late. A last second thing."

    Weymiller said teams worked him out at linebacker and liked how he moved after being a down linemen for three years.

    "I felt like I did pretty well," Weymiller said. "It's hard telling, because nobody knows your times for sure, but I felt like I ran pretty well and I think I got 28 on the bench."

    The Kohawks can point to former standout running back Fred Jackson as one who successfully made the leap from D-III to the NFL.

    He's entering his seventh season with the Buffalo Bills.

    "He's obviously made it, so it gives you hope you can make it, too," Weymiller said.
