Wesley Football holds NFL Pro Day

DOVER, Del. – The Wesley College football team held a Pro Day for their professional prospects on Friday.

Seventeen NFL scouts and an NFL assistant coach came to Wesley's campus to scout offensive lineman Matt Gono, wide receiver James Okike and running back Jamar Baynard.

All three players participated in several drills including the 40-yard dash, bench press, three-cone drill and several other combine drills in front of the NFL personnel. After the drills, Gono participated in individual workouts in front of the scouts.

A Gagliardi Trophy semifinalist, Gono was named a First Team All-America by the American Football Coaches Association and the Associated Press and a Third Team All-America by D3football.com in 2017. Gono was also a D3footballl.com All-America honoree in 2015. In January, Gono participated and performed well at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, which was held at the Rose Bowl, against Division I competition.

Gono is a three-time D3Football.com All-East Region and New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) First Team honoree. He is also a two-time All-Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) All-Star.

Gono did not allow a sack all year and helped lead the Wolverines to the best offense in the NJAC with 5,295 total yards, including 2,477 yards on the ground. He paved the way for five All-NJAC Players, including NJAC Offensive Player of the Year, ECAC All-Star and D3football All-Region running back E.J. Lee.

Baynard is tops in career scoring, rushing attempts, rushing touchdowns and total touchdowns in Wesley football history. Baynard has accumulated 5,499 yards of total offense and 59 touchdowns. Baynard was a D3football.com All-Region selection in 2016 and a two-time All-New Jersey Athletic Conference First Team honoree. In 2017, Baynard spent time with the Washington Redskins organization.

A two-time All-NJAC First Team and 2015 D3football.com All-America honoree, Okike finished his Wesley career with 145 receptions, 2,384 receiving yards and 29 total touchdowns.

The prospects will now have individual workouts with several NFL teams before the NFL Draft. The NFL Draft is set for April 26-28 on ESPN.
