Josh McLeod’s dream of playing pro football became reality after signing and playing with Germany’s Frankfurt Universe pro team after North Central graduation.

Growing up in nearby Lisle, Ill., former North Central College safety Josh McLeod ’12 dreamed of playing professional football. Unlike many of his peers, McLeod achieved his dreams this summer, taking an unconventional route to the pro ranks by signing a contract with the Frankfurt Universe of the German Football League (GFL).  

“My dream and goal since I was in junior high was to play pro football,” said McLeod. “I never thought it would be overseas, though.”
