After opting out of the 2020 season, Kennedy Brooks is ready to return to the field

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.

Brooks said the decision to miss last season was a tough one, but after talking with his family it was the right choice to make.

“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.”

While away from the team, Brooks said he approached the year off like an NFL offseason, continuing to work out and stay prepared for his return to the field.
