Gavin Heslop signed an undrafted rookie free-agent contact with the Seattle Seahawks just moments after the completion of the 2020 NFL Draft on Saturday.
The Archbishop Stepinac High School graduate and Yonkers native was a senior captain and defensive back at Stony Brook in 2019.
“This is a dream come true for me,” Heslop said in a press release from Stony Brook. “All of the hard work over the past five years at Stony Brook has paid off. I could not be more excited for this opportunity.”
As a redshirt senior in 2019, Heslop finished with 52 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, two blocked kicks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in earning third-team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors. He returned one fumble for a touchdown.
Heslop started 37 consecutive games and collected 138 total tackles in his collegiate career.
