Former Pitt DT Chas Alecxih Talks "Hard Knocks," Time In NFL & Near-Death Experience

PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) -- Former Pitt defensive tackle Chas Alecxih joined The Fan Morning Show on Friday to talk about his NFL training camp experience, as he was recently released by the Miami Dolphins after being signed as an undrafted free agent.

The Dolphins were featured on HBO's all-access show "Hard Knocks," and Alecxih definitely received his fair share of airtime. He explained that the cameras aren't as distracting as one might think.

"To be honest, you really forget about that like two days into the filming. You kind of become natural, and act yourself," he said.

He said he remains 100 percent confident he can play in the NFL.

"I held my own down there, and I have no doubt I can play in that league," he added

He also touched on a near-death experience he recently had in the Gulf of Mexico.

The interview, which covered all that and much more, can be heard here:
