During this years draft, we are hearing a new meaning of what some look at as bravery. But I give to you "old school bravery" in an UDFA that signed with the Eagles. U.S. Army Ranger First Lt. Alejandro Villanueva is getting his shot at the NFL. Villanueva, 25, a graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point, and former Army Ranger, spent the last four years as an active member of the Army, serving in three tours in Afghanistan, where he earned a bronze star Medal for valor for moving forward under enemy fire to pull wounded soldiers from an isolated position.. Now that’s BRAVERY. He is 6' 9", and last played football in 2009 at the U.S. Military Academy, where he was West Point's top wide receiver as a senior.
