HAMPTON, Va. – Former Hampton University football standout Micah Pellerin will make his NFL Debut this weekend, after being calls up from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad prior to the team’s contest against the Minnesota Vikings.

 Pellerin originally signed a free-agent contract with the Indianapolis Colts, and he also spent time on the Green Bay Packers’s practice squad.

He was a First Team All-MEAC selection this past season after leading the MEAC with 19 defended passes. He led the conference in passes defended in each of the last two seasons, defending 16 in 2010.

He was tied for seventh on the team in 2011 with 51 tackles (including 29 solo stops), and he was tied for second in the MEAC with four interceptions. His season high of 10 tackles came on Oct. 8 of that year in a 28-23 win over Princeton.

Pellerin returned an interception 42 yards in a season-finale 42-18 win over Morgan State on Nov. 19, 2011, while also returning a pick 16 yards at Norfolk State on Oct. 15.

He also played in the 2012 East-West Shrine Game in Tampa, Fla.

For his career at Hampton, Pellerin, who transferred to the Pirates from Southern Miss in 2009, recorded 124 total tackles (including 80 solo stops) and seven interceptions. He also defended 43 passes in his career, breaking up 36 of them.
