MARYVILLE, Mo. - Two Northwest Missouri State Bearcat football players running back Josh Caldwell and receiver Shawn Bane Jr. will have an opportunity to play in the NFL.

Bane Jr. signed a free agent deal with the Atlanta Falcons and has been one of the most dynamic receivers to play for Northwest as he ranks No. 3 in school history in punt return average (11.9 yards/return), No. 4 in receiving yards (3,363), No. 5 in receiving touchdowns (31) and No. 6 in receptions (212).

Caldwell has been invited to the Washington Redskins free agent minicamp in May. He had a team-high 139 carries and tied for the team lead in rushing touchdowns (11). Caldwell was second on the team in rushing yards (830) and points scored (80).

We continue to see temperatures well above normal across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri on Thursday. We are tracking the potential for more widespread and possibly heavy rainfall this weekend as a slow moving frontal boundary meanders across the region.
