ESPN Features Kirkwood High Grad and St. Louis Ram Mike McNeill

Kirkwood High School graduate tight end Mike McNeill made the St. Louis Rams' roster earlier this year. A recent article on espnW captures the former Pioneer's drive to establish his presence in the NFL.

"It's an amazing feeling," McNeill, 24, told espnW. "I don't know how many people in professional sports can play in their hometown. But I'm not a starter. I haven't furthered my career as much as I've wanted. I have bigger goals and aspirations."

McNeill's determination and humility shine through in the article. The piece includes interviews with McNeil's mom, Sally McNeill, and Nebraska assistant coach Ron Brown who had a lasting impact on the graduate of Kirkwood High School.
