Bulldogs go bowling

While the Brownsburg football team enjoyed its first undefeated regular season since 1994 this past season, former Bulldogs at the Division I level experienced success as well.

Three former Brownsburg players went to three different bowls for their respective schools.

Chris Jones (Class of 2009), senior defensive tackle at Bowling Green, played in the Military Bowl in Washington, D.C.; Kyle Christy (Class of 2011), sophomore punter at Florida, played in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans; and Charles Torwudzo (Class of 2010), sophomore wide receiver at Purdue, was on the roster but did not play for the Heart of Dallas Bowl in Dallas.

Each team lost their respective bowl game as Bowling Green (8-5) fell 29-20 to San Jose State, Florida (11-2) was defeated 33-23 by Louisville, and Purdue (6-7) lost 58-14 to Oklahoma State.

Jones and Christy were both impact players for their teams, earning multiple individual honors.

Jones was named the 2012 Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year, and First-Team All-MAC, and was selected by the Associated Press as a Third-Team All-American. The team captain started all 13 games his senior season while recording 42 tackles, 12.5 sacks, 19.0 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. He was third in the country in sacks and tied for seventh in tackles for loss.

The 6-foot-1, 293-pound defensive tackle’s best game of the season came against Miami (OH) when he racked up three tackles, 2.5 sacks, 2.5 tackles for loss, and a 23-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown in a 37-12 win.

During his career at Bowling Green, Jones was a three-time All-MAC selection, including a two-time first-teamer.

Jones moved to Brownsburg from Midland, Mich., during the end of his sophomore year and the Bulldogs benefited the next two years.

“He’s a kid of very high character and he had a switch that would flip on and nobody could contain him,” Bronwsburg coach Brett Comer said. “He freaked out a couple times in high school where he was just unbelievably on fire.”
