After opting out of the 2020 college football season, running back Kennedy Brooks is back with the team and ready for a resurgent 2021 season.

“We chose to just, (thought it was) best just to sit out for my health because we didn’t really know anything about COVID,” Brooks said. “All the uncertainties … we felt that it was best for me to just sit out and just be safe.”
