Taft native on cusp of NFL glory

TAFT, Calif. -  

A local football prospect is getting a look from NFL teams.

Dalton Botts started his football career in Taft as a quarterback.

He just finished his senior year at the University of Miami as a punter.

Now the NFL is calling.

He says he spoke to eight teams before draft day.

Botts went to mini camps with the Tampa bay buccaneers and the New Orleans saints but at the moment he is not a member of any team.

Now Botts is working out daily while he waits for the call from an NFL team.

NFL training camps open in a little over a month and Botts hopes to be on a roster by then.
