“I’m really proud of the fact that in our 11 years now that we’ve had a few kids go and not play just D-III or D-II but FCS. Ben had a great career at ISU, and I think, given the right opportunity and right spot, he could possibly be on an NFL roster, and hopefully he will,” said Brashear. “I know Tanner is on the watch list for the NFL this year, and he has the leg to be kicking on Sunday afternoons. I was real proud of him, the way he kicked against IU. I was wondering early if he was messing up on some of those kicks, but obviously when he kicked three or four of them into the end zone later on, it was obvious that it was by design that he was squibbing those.
“I’m real proud to be watching kids that we coached on television playing. That says a lot about their character,” said Brashear.
