Kids play football with the dream of someday playing in the National Football League, even in Canada. Well, last Saturday, Anthony Auclair, from the Université Laval Rouge et Or team, took one step closer to his dream.

Undrafted in last weekend’s NFL draft in Philadelphia, Auclair, a six-foot-six, 256-pound tight end, signed a three-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
