CARDS IN THE NFL | Catching up with former U of L football star, Roy Philon

04/05/2016 10:00 AM

Early mornings in a small indoor workout facility in Louisville, you can find former Louisville Football defensive lineman Roy Philon working harder than ever to compete at a professional level. Philon has been training with Corey Taylor Sports Performance, and he says it has made a huge difference in being prepared for the NFL.

Roy finished his U of L career under Charlie Strong having earned starting roles every year in the Red and Black. He has most recently been picked up by the Pittsburgh Steelers after spending last season on the Detriot Lions practice squad.
