Bloomsburg’s Lawrence Elliott invited to Cardinals’ Mini-Camp

Four years ago,Lawrence Elliott arrived on Bloomsburg’s campus. Now, he’ll be traveling across the country to partake in the Arizona Cardinal’s rookie mini-camp. The Utica, NY native had an impressive career at Bloomsburg, which left many thinking he might be drafted in the late rounds. Alas, that call never came. But, the Cardinals saw enough potential in the six-foot, 218-point running back to extend an invition their upcoming tryouts.

Update 5/10/17: We sat down with Lawrence Elliot Jr. and got to know him a little better. Read the new article by clicking here.

The Utica Observer Dispatch: “As a Bloomsburg senior, Lawerence Elliott averaged 140.5 all-purpose yards per game and had three rushing touchdowns in four games last fall. He closed out his career with a season-high 167 rushing yards against nationally-ranked Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He also became the fourth Bloomsburg player in school history to record 5,000 career all-purpose yards and he is the only Huskies player to have at least 500 career yards in the four main all-purpose yardage categories – rushing, receiving, kickoff returns, and punt returns.

Now, with the Cardinals’ rookie mini-camp scheduled for May 12-14, Elliott is the third former Proctor player in the last few years – joining Utica College defensive end Nick Woodman and Coastal Carolina offensive lineman Joe Kaleta – to get a chance to prove himself in the NFL.

“I’m ready for the challenge,” said Elliott, 21. “I just have to go there and show what I can do. All I can do is go there and do my best.”

Obviously I don’t know Elliott, but just from the quotes above he seems to have a level head on his shoulders. I like that he seems humble, at least form what I’ve read. Of course, I’d love to talk to him myself. Hey, Lawrence, if you’d ever like to appear on our podcast, just hit me up at @ProducerCavi! From one PSAC guy to another, I think it’s a good idea.

Good luck, Lawrence Elliott, we’re all pulling for you.
