Bo Brooks, PetE’19, who earned All-America honors for the Miner football team as a linebacker during the 2018 season, was given the opportunity to participate in two rookie tryout camps during May and June with teams in the National Football League.

Brooks took part in the rookie camp held by the Cleveland Browns. He was also invited to train with the Cincinnati Bengals, but was unable to participate due to an injury sustained during training with the Browns.

Brooks earned three All-America awards and Google Cloud Academic All-America honors. He was a first-team all-conference selection and was the Great Lakes Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year. He is the second player in school history with at least 20 stops behind the line of scrimmage and 10 sacks in the same season and the fourth player in school history to earn All-America and Academic All-America honors in the same season. He was nominated for the Cliff Harris Award, which is given to the top small-college defensive player in the nation.
