Wichita Falls Nighthawks Offensive Lineman Tino Tuilata is headed to the NFL.
Tuilata, a 6'5, 320 pound lineman, played for the Midwestern State University Mustangs before joining the Nighthawks last year. He'll leave Thursday en route to the Washington Redskins' minicamp, which will be held from May 11 to May 14.
"We are excited to see Tino get that opportunity to showcase his abilities at the NFL level," Coach Back said. "The Redskins are getting one big, physical athlete who can play all spots on the offensive line, defensive line, and long snap. He'll be missed, but we are rooting for him."
