This Wednesday, the International Player Pathway Program announced that offensive lineman Alfredo Gutiérrez Urías has been invited to their training grounds.
The Monterrey Rams’ imposing lineman, who is 2.08 m tall and weighs 155 kg, will have to go for tryouts in February or March. He could follow the same route as his teammate Isaac Alarcón, who is now with the Dallas Cowboys.
He is a physically imposing young man who could perform very well in the tryouts.
“His size, weight and aggressiveness make him stand out,” said Carlos Altamirano, the Monterrey Rams’ head coach.
“Alfredo is currently in Dallas, Texas, working on his strength and speed with a personal trainer,” said the coach.
“If he can increase his speed and strength, he’ll have a good chance of reproducing what Isaac is doing,” explained the coach.
Gutiérrez is the only Mexican who has been invited and is among 11 promising players for the NFL from around the world.
Originally from Tijuana, Baja California, he is studying a Bachelor’s in Marketing at the Monterrey campus and was part of the Monterrey Rams team that won the CONADEIP Premier League in 2019.

The 22-year-old offensive lineman was selected by the Dallas team in 2020, through the International Pathway Program, and took part in pre-season training with the team.
