Former Cru football player Bryson Tucker ’11 signed a contract with the Green Bay Blizzard of the Indoor Football League in May. Tucker is on the Blizzard roster as a defensive back after signing his deal on May 11th.

He also rushed for 1,230 yards and 11 touchdowns as a running back, caught four passes for 25 yards and a touchdown, averaged 21.3 yards per kickoff return and 12.3 yards per punt return, and returned three combined kicks for touchdowns during his career. Tucker was an AFCA and D3football.com All-American as a senior and was also a three-time American Southwest Conference All-Conference selection. Tucker played for four ASC championship teams, four NCAA postseason qualifiers, and a pair of national semifinalist teams at UMHB.
