Former UGA linebacker Amarlo Herrera has been pursuing a pro football career since leaving Athens, but now he is looking at another venture – wrestling. Perhaps Herrera can follow in the footsteps of another ex-Dawg, Bill Goldberg.
Amarlo was listed by the WWE website as on of many wrestling hopefuls who tried out recently:
Amarlo Herrera, a 250-pound linebacker from the University of Georgia who was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft
Here are Herrera’s career highs as a Dawg:
*19 tackles vs. No. 16 Georgia Tech in 2014
*2 sacks vs. No. 16 Clemson in 2014
*3.5 tackles for loss vs. No. 16 Clemson in 2014
*1 touchdown vs. Florida Atlantic in 2012
*1 interception (3x), last vs. No. 9 Auburn in 2014
*1 fumble recovery (2x), last vs. No. 16 Georgia Tech in 2014
