COLUMBUS, Ohio – Senior kicker Brent Wahle (Pataskala, Ohio) earned an invitation to the Cleveland Browns rookie minicamp, which will be held from May 13-15.
Wahle is the second Ohio Dominican football senior to earn a spot in an NFL camp after Dez Stewart (Cincinnati, Ohio) was signed as a priority free agent Saturday night by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Wahle garnered 21 All-American awards in his decorated career and was named the Ohio Dominican Senior Male Student-Athlete of the Year on Monday.
A consensus All-American after his senior season, along with earning CoSIDA Academic All-American status, Wahle was one of 10 finalists for the Fred Mitchell Award as one of the best small college kickers in the country. He also was a finalist after his junior campaign in 2014.
Wahle made 17 field goals this season en route to setting the GLIAC career record for field goals made and for most points scored by a kicker. He hit a season long of 53 yards against Tiffin, which tied his own school record for longest kick, and also made a 52 yarder against Walsh and a 50 yarder at Saginaw Valley.
He earned two GLIAC Player of the Week awards, giving him six in his career, and also was named a First Team All-GLIAC performer for a third straight year.
Overall, he made 67 field goals in his career and 193 extra points. Wahle hit 16 field goals of 45 yards or longer and five of 50 yards or longer.
