Man Stands Outside Gillette Stadium for a Month Hoping to Land Patriots Tryout

It is extremely difficult to land a job in the NFL, where only a select few of the world’s best football players can make a practice squad, never mind the active roster. But the tough market does not intimidate former University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth wide receiver Abiola Aborishade, who has stood outside of Gillette Stadium for a month with a sign for a resume and a dream of earning a tryout with the New England Patriots.

According to Mass Live, Aborishade took up his post outside Gillette on April 21, and he has stood there nearly every day since for the hours before and after his shifts at his day job at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in the hopes that his persistence will help him earn a tryout with the team.
