PITTSBURG, Kan. – Former Pittsburg State standout Dallis Flowers has earned his spot on an NFL roster.

Flowers has been named to the 53-man active roster for the Indianapolis Colts – after the team made its final round of cuts Tuesday ahead of the NFL’s deadline to reduce rosters to 53 players. Flowers is expected to serve as both a cornerback and kick returner for Indianapolis.

The former Gorilla signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent back in May, after playing one full season with Pittsburg State.

The 6-2, 190 lb Flowers was a 1st team All-MIAA selection as a defensive back and a 2nd team All-MIAA selection as a kick returner last fall. He finished with 21 tackles and a team-high 4 interceptions. He also had two kick return touchdowns for the Gorillas and averaged 33.7 yards per kickoff return – setting a new Pitt State record and breaking the previous record held by former PSU All-American John Brown.

He finished his career with Pitt State after being a 2X NAIA All-American with the Grand View Vikings in Des Moines, Iowa.
