USA Rugby standout and Jackson High School graduate Carlin Isles will be looking to score touchdowns as well as tries after signing with the Detroit Lions on Thursday. Isles is projected to be a wide receiver on the practice squad in Detroit. Isles hadn't played football since he graduated from Ashland University and was surprised at the interest from the NFL. "This wasn't something I was looking into," Isles said. "A couple of teams called my agent and approached me with these opportunities. I haven't played football in four years, but I wanted to give it a shot." Detroit moved to sign Isles quickly after bringing him in to take a look at him earlier in the week. "Detroit brought me in for a tryout earlier in the week," Isles said. "They had me go through wide-receiver drills and run the 40-yard dash. I think I surprised them all and I felt like the tryout went very well. They called my agent the next day and wanted to sign me. I signed Thursday morning and started practice." Detroit wasn't the only NFL franchise interested in taking a look at the speedster before he signed. "The Indianapolis Colts and New York Giants were also looking to bring me in," Isles said. "Before I signed I was supposed to work out for the Colts on Friday. The New York Giants wanted me to come in on Jan. 6. I was very surprised at all the interest. It was shocking." Isles believes his speed will translate to the NFL. "I think the biggest thing I'm bringing to the team is speed," Isles said. "I've been playing rugby so I'm used to contact. I think people will find I'm tenacious and tough. I think the electrifying speed is the biggest thing I bring to the team though." Although Isles is now on an NFL practice squad he is not thinking of relinquishing his title of rugby's fastest man quite yet. "I'm still playing rugby," Isles said. "After the NFL season is over I'm going to head back to the team and start getting ready for the Las Vegas tournament next year." For now Isles doesn't believe balancing the two sports will be hard. "I don't think participating in both will be difficult," Isles said.

Carlin Isles joined Glasgow Warriors in February 2014 on a short-term deal.
Carlin has been dubbed the fastest rugby player in the world after swapping athletics for rugby in 2012.
His fastest 100 metre time of 10.13 seconds would have qualified for the semi-finals at the London 2012 Olympics and he was ranked as one of the fastest sprinters in the United States.
Born in Ohio, Isles started his rugby career at Gentlemen of Aspen RFC in Colorado, before going on to play for the USA national development team at the Victoria 7s in July 2012.
In October of the same year he made his debut for the USA national sevens team, at the Gold Coast 7s and scored a try in his first minute on the pitch.
Carlin immediately became a key player for the USA Eagles and has been a regular in the team ever since. Utilising his electrifying pace and ability he has scored a number of breathtaking tries for his country.
He has scored 27 tries in 14 sevens tournaments for the USA national team in the IRB Sevens World Series and also featured for his country at the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Russia last year.
He had already signed a training contract to join the Detroit Lions as a wide receiver or running back, after being courted by a number of NFL franchises, however, he was holding out for an opportunity in rugby union.
