The University of Louisville isn’t the only university in Kentucky getting players drafted into the NFL this year.
With the 171st pick, the Dallas Cowboys drafted Western Kentucky quarterback Mike White.
New Cowboys QB Mike White (Western Kentucky): "Waking up today I was hoping so because it's the Dallas Cowboys. Who in the heck wouldn't want to play for the Dallas Cowboys."

White became the highest draft pick at the quarterback position in Western Kentucky history. He also became the first Hiltopper to be drafted by the Dallas Cowboys.
Not too shabby to have Dak Prescott as your mentor.
Western Kentucky linebacker, Joel Iyieguiwe, was drafted 115th to the Chicago Bears.
Congrats, Mike and Joel!
