University of Saint Francis wide receiver Austin Coleman earned an invitation to the Seattle Seahawks training camp.

Coleman relayed the news on Twitter after the conclusion of the 2013 NFL Draft on Saturday.

“Glad to say I'm going to be apart of this Seattle Seahawks S/O to God,” Coleman posted on Twitter.

Coleman, who played at Harding High School, was a two-time NAIA All-American at Saint Francis and excelled in receiving and kick returns. He set the NAIA career record for kickoff returns for touchdowns with eight. He caught 42 passes last season for 645 yards and seven touchdowns.
