Graceland University’s Donte Sylencieux signed a free agent contract with the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.
Graceland Head Football Coach Nate Robinson said, “Donte is athletically gifted. I’m most proud that he found a way to complete his education while working towards his athletic goals. I know he has a lot of people back home and here at Graceland rooting for him.”
If he makes the roster, Sylencieux will reunite with his high school quarterback Lamar Jackson, who was the league’s most valuable player in 2019.
“It is thrilling to see Yellowjacket athletes competing at the highest levels of sport,” said Patricia Draves, Graceland University President. “We are so proud to call Donte one of our alumni.”
