Bowie State held its NFL Pro Day on Wednesday and it was a successful one, to say the least seeing six Bulldogs and nine athletes total participate.

Representing Bowie State were quarterback Ja’rome Johnson, running back Calil Wilkins, linebacker Wesley Bowers and defensive backs Simeon Gatling, Tevin Singleton, and Myles Wolfolk.

Morgan State wide receiver Wesley Wolfolk was also a participant in Bowie State’s Pro Day.

“It was great to have the scouts come see our seniors that would like to continue playing the game they love,” said head coach Damon Wilson. “It doesn’t matter what level of football you play, the scouts will find you. I was glad to see so many of our underclassmen out to support our seniors. They now have a reference point to go pull from if they desire to continue to play football after college. They had the opportunity to see the business side of the game today and see the level of commitment that is needed.”

One of the stars of the day was Myles Wolfolk who recorded a 35″ vertical and a 10’4″ broad jump.

His brother Wesley Wolfolk had a good day as well putting up 17 reps in the bench press, recording a 31″ vertical and a 10’1″ broad jump.

Wolfolk shined in the position drills as well running routes well showing off his hands making some very good catches.

Bowie State linebacker and graduate transfer Wesley Bowers put up 17 reps in the bench press, a 35″ vertical and a 9’6″ broad jump.

A highlight in particular for Bowers was his performance three-cone drill showing off his spectacular footwork shifting through the cones with ease.

Harlon Hill Trophy finalist Calil Wilkins was noticeably absent after participating in the bench press. This is reportedly due to an injury the running back suffered in the HBCU Legacy Bowl that is not expected to be serious.
