Ex-GM\’s son-in-law getting a chance to tryout with the Lions

Collin Mooney is getting the opportunity of a lifetime-a chance to tryout for an NFL team- the Detroit Lions.

Mooney has a famous father-in-law, Matt Millen, who was the Lions General Manager for 7 seasons from 2001 to 2008.

The West Point Graduate, who played football for Army, holds the school record for the most rushing yards in one season: 1,339 yards back in 2008.

Mooney has already fulfilled his 2 year post-graduate commitment to the West Point academy, so he can join the Lions right away.

The 5\’10, 245 pound running back will compete for a roster spot.

The Lions have lost both Mikel Leshoure (torn left Achilles- out for season) and Maurice Morris (broken hand- out indefinitely) to injuries.
