Three Players From Eaton Colorado Currently Playing in the NFL
The town of Eaton, Colorado has just over 5,000 residents. That same town has produced three athletes who are currently playing in the NFL; Trent Sieg, Austin Ekeler and Mitch Unrein. All three played for Eaton High School.
- Trent Sieg is a a long snapper from Colorado State University who was signed by the Raiders on Wednesday to replace injured long-snapper Andrew DePaola. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens last spring as an undrafted free agent.
