San Antonio’s Alliance of American Football franchise has signed its first three players, the league announced on Monday night as part of its first 100 players signing list.
The three players signed include former Incarnate Word punter Joseph Zema, former West Texas-A&M kicker Sergio Castillo, and Houston Texans defensive lineman Matthew Godin as San Antonio bound.
Zema punted 77 times and posted an average of 46.7 yards a pun in 2017 for the Cardinals and was named to the 2017 Walter Camp FCS All-America Team.
Castillo has spent three seasons in the Canadian Football League from 2015 to 2017. He has played with Ontario, Winnipeg, and Hamilton. In his CFL career, he has posted 93 punts and connected on 29-of-34 field goal attempts.
Godin played with the Michigan Wolverines in his college career, posting 57 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one interception. He was an undrafted rookie and spent his first season on the Houston Texans Injured Reserve after tearing his ACL in a preseason game. He was later cut by Houston after failing a physical.
San Antonio’s Alliance of American Football franchise will kick off its inaugural season in February 2019.
