Abiola Aborishade, the former wide receiver at Division III UMass Dartmouth, went undrafted, but he hasn’t let that deter him from his dream of playing in the NFL one day.

For the past month, Aborishade has stood outside Gillette Stadium in hopes of getting the attention of Bill Belichick or any of the other coaches who will offer him a tryout to showcase what he can do.

Via TheScore:

“Aborishade has been arriving at the facility around 5:45 a.m. so he can catch the attention of head coach Bill Belichick. He stays until 7 a.m., when his shift at Enterprise Rent-A-Car starts, and then returns after he punches out at 1 p.m. Some players wave, while others, like Jordan RichardsRob Ninkovich, and Malcolm Butler, have stopped to talk.”

Last week, Patriots CB Malcolm Butler snapped a pic and wrote this on a FB post:

Leaving practice today, I see this guy standing outside for a opportunity to play this game of football. This reminded me to always be thankful and never take your blessings for granted… On the other hand, this is the attitude you must have if you really want something…….‪#‎NEVERGIVEUP‬

“I honestly was thinking three things could happen from this,” Aborishade told Duffy. “The first thing is that they see me so often that they get sick and tired of me. So they almost give up, give into it, because I’m not giving in. So they give in and they say, ‘OK, let’s see what this kid can do.’ The second thing is the people who drive around here, who work around here, see me so often that they almost say, ‘Hey, we want to see what he can do.’

“And the third thing is they just leave me out here.”
