"Brian is a blue collar player; he puts the hard hat on and comes to work every day. He has a workman-like attitude and leads by example," Bloomsburg offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Brian McBryan said. "Brian is extremely aggressive in his blocking style and is tremendously consistent. He has been a leader in our offense and is just as dominant 30 yards down field as he is at the point of attack." - Bloomsburg football
