Running back Jermicheal Selders trying out for Saskatchewan Roughriders today

Speedy former New Mexico State running back-safety Jermicheal Selders is working out today for the Sasketchewan Roughriders.
Selders is also on the radar of the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles.
Selders has been working out at Footwork Kings in Houston with Rischad Whitfield and Justin Allen, the younger brother of Colts tight end Dwayne Allen.
Selders is a 6-foot, 210-pounder with 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash who's run the 100 meters in 10.5 seconds.
His speed is evident in this highlight video.
The second cousin of Allen, Selders was recruited by West Virginia and Baylor out of high school at Cypress Creek in Houston. He was a first-team all-district and second-team all-state selection.
He was also recruited by Arkansas, Tulane, Tulsa and Vanderbilt.
Although he committed to West Virginia, Selders had academic issues.
He enrolled at City College in San Francisco before transferring to New Mexico State.
"My grades got in the way," Selders said. "That kind of messed me up at times.
After transferring, Selders redshirted and moved to defense to play safety. He then went back to running back.
He played behind Larry Rose at running back, averaging six yards per carry.
"I'm a physical guy with speed and power," said Selders, who's training at IX Innovations in Houston and is represented by Houston-based agent J.D. Ogilvie. "I will play special teams, free safety, corner or running back. I'm real fast."
Selders is determined to support his family.
His mother needs two knee replacements. He's also a devoted father.
"My son needs stability," Selders said. "My dream is still within reach. I'm really motivated. My son is my life. I just want a better life for him. My mom has been struggling. I went through so much. I'm just so motivated. I just want to show it on the field. On the field is where I release all my stress. I just want to show everybody, all the people who's been doubting me that it's my time to come back."
