49 Days to Purdue Football: Adam Brockman

 

Our last great #49 was a defensive end, so it is only appropriate that today we profile a player at the same position. Adam Brockman may not be the second coming of Anthony Spencer, but he is a kid that has patiently waited for his time to contribute. That time could be now.

Adam Brockman - Sr.

Hometown: Lebanon, IN (Lebanon HS)

Defensive End

6'3", 260 pounds

2011 Projection: Contributor on Special Teams, Defensive end

Brockman played in all 12 game last season on both special teams and as a reserve defensive end. He'll likely be ion the same role again this year. He only notched a single tackle, but he was often one of the three blockers in our ridiculous punt protection scheme.

He attended high school in California before coming to Indiana before his senior season. He settled in Lebanon, just 30 miles from Lafayette. At Lebanon high He made the Indiana All-Star team with 92 tackles and earned a scholarship to Eastern Michigan. At EMU he started three games and had 13 tackles in 2007, but he wanted something more. He left the Eagles after the season and decided to walk-on at Purdue. After sitting out the 2008 season due to transfer rules he appeared in all 12 games in 2009. 

Brockman is also a very intelligent kid. As a physical education major he earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2009. His brother Aaron Brockman also played at Air Force. Unfortunately, his most infamous play was getting leapt over by David Gilbert at Wisconsin on a blocked punt.
