Best Pro Performance By A Local Athlete

Baltimore native Shaquil Barrett totaled 8.5 sacks from 2016-2018 with the Broncos. After being acquired by the Buccaneers, he managed to surpass that number … in his first month.

He posted his first career double-digit sack season and grabbed his first career interception in 2019.

Barrett attended City but moved to Nebraska at the age of 15 because his father wanted to keep him away from troubled streets.
