Jonathon Sharpe of Conway, South Carolina led his high school football team in total tackles, solo tackles, forced fumbles, recovered fumbles, and blocked kicks. He started his college career at Wofford before transferring to North Greenville University. As a two-year starter at NGU, he made a lot of tackles (132!) there too.
In 2013, as a free agent, Sharpe was signed by the Indianapolis Colts. He was waived by the team in August 2014. But that hasn’t stopped Sharpe from working to find another NFL team. To pay the pills, Sharpe works as an exterminator by day. He says, “I never thought one day I’d grow up to be a bug man.” At night he trains with his parents. His mother Shannon likes to give him pointers in the 40-yard dash, which you can see in the NFL Undrafted episode which features Sharpe. NFL Undrafted airs Tuesdays at 8pm and after every Thursday Night Football postgame show.
