Catching up with RB Brandon Cottom


Brandon Cottom, Boiler running back 2011-2014 who had stints in the NFL, AAF and Arena League, was interviewed by a Philadelphia-centric football vlog a few months ago. Not a whole lot of Purdue info, but an interesting watch all the same. Cottom was averaging over 9 YPC in Hope's final season, found himself in Hazell's doghouse (and Shoop's gag-awful offense), and had exactly 1 rushing attempt his senior year. The fact that he played a couple seasons for the Seahawks is testament to this young man's talent and drive, as well as the questionable coaching of the Hazell era.
