Damon Sheehy-Giuseppi Is Real Life Willie Mays Hayes, Top NFL Players


Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi took a circuitous route to earn a spot on the Cleveland Browns’ roster this season. After not receiving a scholarship to college, he showed up uninvited for an NFL workout in Miami, where he pretended to know the Vice President of Player Personnel for the Cleveland Browns. Sheehy-Guiseppi’s speed impressed the group, and he was invited for an official workout for the team a week later (where he spent nights in 24-hour fitness facilities and sleeping outside). He again impressed the personnel and earned a spot on the roster. His story reads like a scene from the movie “Major League” where Willie Mays Hayes shows up uninvited at the fictional Indians spring training and runs a blistering 40 in his pajamas to earn a spot on the team.

CBS Sports puts out the top NFL players under 25 list every year and to no ones’ surprise, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes claimed the #1 spot. Rounding out the top five is LA Chargers Joey Bosa at #2, Cleveland Browns Myles Garrett at #3, the Texans Deshaun Watson at #4, and the Browns Baker Mayfield at #5. For the full list, click here.
