Profile of Fairmont State Defensive End Luke Black


 

After cutting WR Jordan Shipley yesterday, the Bengals had an open roster spot to use, and with multiple injuries on the defensive line, the team announced they’ve signed rookie DE Luke Black of Fairmont State, a small NCAA D-II school in West Virginia. He had 20 sacks as four-year starter for the Falcons, and will now be an extra practice body who hopes to maybe impress the coaching staff and make it onto the practice squad.

 

Here’s his profile courtesy of Fairmont State’s website:

As A Senior: Second team All-WVIAC selection as a defensive end … posted 29 tackles (17 solo) and nine tackles for a loss … finished his career ranked in the top 10 for sacks (20) and tackles for a loss (37) … five tackles with a sack against Clarion (9/1) … three tackles, all of them for a loss including a sack, against WVU Tech (9/10) … three solo stops against West Liberty (9/24) … intercepted a pass against WV Wesleyan (10/15) … three total tackles including a sack at Seton Hill (10/22) … also batted down a pass against the Griffins … in on three tackles, two of which went for a loss, at WV State (11/5) … two solo tackles on Senior Day against Shepherd (11/12).
