It's like a blockbuster movie that no-one could've predicted. A superstar lacrosse player, decides to walk-on for a Division II college and leads the team to an undefeated season. Now... he's done the unbelievable again. Almost 2 years later, he is officially an NFL Pro wide receiver.
Just a few years ago, Jared Bernhardt played lacrosse for the Maryland Terrapins. During his tenure he set the school record in goals (202) and points (290). Bernhardt was just a freshman in 2017, when they grabbed a lacrosse championship. In 2021, he took home the Tewaarton Trophy as the nation's best lacrosse player. That's when his story changed and he took a transfer to Ferris State as a football QB.
Bernhardt became the starter and snagged the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year. Plus, he lead the team to an undefeated season and Division II national title. In the national championship game he carried the team with for 148 yards rushing and three touchdowns over 14 carries. It was just last May, that he transitioned to the Wide Receiver position and just got signed to the Falcons' 53-man roster. THAT'S INCREDIBLE!!
He'll be exciting to watch this year and one to root for. This guy conquers everything and does it at an elite level. The Falcons' twitter said it best, "Jared Bernhardt is athletic. That’s it. That’s the tweet."
This guys is going to do big things in the NFL.
This is back when he played Lacrosse in college and he was a beast at that too!
