Sports: GW High Grad Curry Adjusting to NFL with Rams
In NFL exhibition action tonight, the Rams are visiting New England. That means another chance for George Washington High School product Dominique Curry to open some eyes.
KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with the wide receiver who signed as a rookie free agent with the St. Louis Rams back in May. Curry has spent the summer battling to make the squad.

Curry says one thing he’s had to adjust to is the speed of the game at the NFL level:
“You know, me and the other rookies came in after the first practice and we were like, ‘They’re moving — everyone. D-lineman, they are chasing running backs down! It’s something I’m used to, but not they way they are doing it.”
Curry talks about the biggest challenges of transitioning to the NFL:
“I would say the playbook and being able to read the defenses. It’s more complicated than in college. Players are smarter, better, and faster, so you have to read the coverages and understand the playbook quicker than usual.”
Curry played football for three years at Division II Cheyney before playing his final season at California (Pa). He has one catch for the Rams so far in exhibition action this summer.
