WWE Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine worked out for NFL scouts at Florida International University's Pro Day workout on Thursday, according to Alex Marvez of Leavine played offensive line at the school from 2006 to 2010 and was given permission to participate by the school's new head football coach.

It was a weird situation,” Leavine said of Tough Enough. "They were thinking one thing and obviously I was thinking another … It was frustration on my end that did me in. I felt like they had put me in a position to shine and I was getting held back.

"Granted, there had been a lot of guys ahead of me that had been wrestling for a long time who were getting their shot, which they deserved. But I felt like, ‘You put me in this position where you spent millions and millions of dollars to build me up into something.’ It’s kind of like going on a big date and at the end of the night she goes, 'All right, I’ll call you tomorrow.' Come on, man!"

Powell's POV: Leavine seemed like a good enough guy who just lacked the charisma to make it in pro wrestling. He told Marvez that a past FIU head coach kicked the scouts off the field while they ran their 40-yard dash during his previous pro day, which left him feeling cheated. I don't know how common that is, but it seems awfully strange since the idea is that the players can showcase their skills for the scouts. Thanks to Dot Net reader Sean Thurmond for sharing the story.
