    Cov Cath Grad Max Halpin

    Max Halpin (CCH '12) walked on at Western Kentucky and is currently their starting center.

    Last year Max was named to the Rimington Trophy watchlist. The award was established in 2000 and recognizes college football's outstanding player at the center position.

    This season, not only is Max on the Rimington watchlist again, but he is also currently a nominee for the Burlsworth Trophy this year. The Burlsworth Trophy is awarded to the most outstanding college football player who started out their college career as a walk-on.

    Nice work Max!!

    At worst he's a UFA and gets into a camp.

    He is 4th ranked Center in College Football right now and would love the Bengals to get him.
    It would be great, me and his dad were best friends growing up and would love nothing better than to see his kid make it to the NFL!!

    Pro Football Focus has Max as the 4th Highest Graded Center in college football. Even with that, he'll need to show burst and strength at the combine.

    Who the heck put together that C-USA team? A real disconnect there.

    College2Pro.com just posted a podcast interview with Max about his career at Western and what he's doing to prepare for the NFL Draft. Pretty cool.
