Ex-Maryland star Bernhardt tries switch from lacrosse to NFL

ATLANTA (AP) Jared Bernhardt traded in his stick for the pigskin.

Just two years after being honored as the nation's top college lacrosse player, Bernhardt has taken on the challenge of making it as an NFL receiver with the Atlanta Falcons.

"It's very difficult," he conceded. "You're at the top of the sports world, the elite of the elite. That's kind of what brought me to it, competing against the best. I'm just trying to come out here and give it my all. That's all I can really ask for."
