Dan Persa's thoughts on his football future

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Former Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa was one of 10 ex-Wildcats from the 2011 team who participated in the program's annual Pro Timing Day at the Nicolet Center.

Persa, who has spent time training in Tennessee since the Wildcats last played in the Meineke Car Care Bowl Dec. 31, was pleased with his performance.

"It went well, I thought I ran pretty well, obviously I thought we threw the ball well between me, Brew [Andrew Brewer], Jeremy [Ebert] and Drake [Dunsmore]," Persa said. "I thought we all did really well. It's a grind, you're working out twice a day, talking to different teams, talking to your agent a lot."

Persa wanted to prove he is nearly 100 percent since rupturing his right Achilles tendon back in November 2010 and suffering a strained right calf muscle last summer. That setback forced Persa to miss the Wildcats' first three games.

"It's been fun. I've been looking forward to this for a while. I've had some really good times and some really bad times, but it's all worth it to show what you can do on the field."
