From the pizza shop to the Patriots, an NFL hopeful from North Dakota was signed to the practice squad on Wednesday.
Sebastian Gutierrez, a 6-foot-6 offensive lineman, played football at Minot State and was later waived by the Denver Broncos.
While he was working and waiting for his next shot in the NFL, he got a job at Uncle Maddio’s Pizza in Minot, North Dakota.

“I saw him behind the line making pizzas and I just, I thought my manager Denise must have hired someone to head off security, I guess,” Losson Leonard, owner of Uncle Maddio’s, said via KFYR.
Gutierrez got a job at the pizza shop and worked “two, three days a week,” according to Leonard, when the football player was not busy training.
“I think he’s a great young man and I wish him the best. I think he’ll do well,” Leonard said. “I think once they let him in the door, he’ll never come out, I think he’ll have a great career in the NFL.”
