Yale LB Gets Shot at NFL

NEW HAVEN, Conn. –  He made 211 tackles in a Yale uniform and will get a chance to show his skills to a National Football League team this spring. Senior linebacker Will McHale (Greenwich, Conn.) has been invited to a New Orleans Saints mini-camp from May 10-12.

McHale, the elected team captain for 2012, led last fall's squad with 78 tackles while starting every game.

A three-year starter, McHale earned All-Ivy League honors on the field in 2011 and academic All-Ivy accolades as a senior. Meanwhile, the Yale coaches tabbed him as the Hammer Award winner and the Robert Gardner Anderson Award recipient as a junior and senior respectively.

The former Greenwich High School standout finished his career with three interceptions and five sacks.
