Ex-St Kilda forward keeping NFL dream alive at Auburn

Arryn Siposs is continuing to imagine what a career in the NFL would look like.

The former St Kilda forward set off for the US about 18 months ago in a bid to play college football with the idea being to set the platform for something bigger.

Siposs, 27, is studying education at Auburn University and is also keen to find a way into the coaching caper after previously coaching Brighton Grammar in the APS.

The 28-game Saint is also the punter for Auburn and says the NFL remains the major dream.

“If it all goes to plan I’d like to be able to have a shot at the NFL,” he said on SEN Summer Breakfast.

“That’s obviously one thing that has definitely been on my mind. Ultimately that’s what I came over here to do. I wanted to be able to have an impact at this level then give myself every chance to make it to the NFL.

“If that doesn’t happen, then I’m fortunate enough to come out with a degree and spend another 12 months here finishing off my college career. Then I’ll get to come back to Australia and continue on my merry way with being a teacher.

“So that’s kind of where it’s going at the moment.”

Siposs helped pull off a cheeky play when sent on as a wide receiver to fool the Alabama Crimson Tide as the Tigers upset their state rivals to win the Iron Bowl 48-45 in front of more than 87,000 fans on the weekend.
