Baylor Legacy: Brock Bomkamp

His grandfather and his father played for Baylor. See what Baylor University legacy Brock Bomkamp has to say about his future plans only in Thee Den.

Towering at a height of 6-6 and weighing in at 320 pounds, Brock Bomkamp is finally back to 100%. His freshman year he dislocated his right knee and had to have surgery to repair it. His sophomore year, Bompamp dislocated his left knee and had surgery to repair it. But after missing most of three seasons, Bomkamp is fully recovered and ready to make a statement.

It was the last game of his junior season when Bomkamp and his coaches knew he was back at full strength.

"We were playing Lake Travis, and I didn't miss a block that whole game."

When asked what one play he most remembered from this past season, Bomkamp was quick to answer.

"It was a 35 lead. The linebacker was right in front of me. He was this hot shot linebacker. I went right at him, blew him up, blocked him all the way down, and we scored."

Benching 350 and possessing the skill to be a great run blocker, Bomkamp has been working on his footwork and his squat in the off-season.

"My goal next year is to make All-Area, and help lead the team to the playoffs."

Bomkamp understands the importance of understanding the offense and each week's gameplan.

"As an offensive lineman, you have to know all the plays. You gotta be smart to be an offensive lineman."

He's hearing from school's such as Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas, Texas A&M, and Nebraska, but has yet to receive an offer. So what is it that Bomkamp is looking for in a school on the next level?

"A good school. A school with good academics. I want to play at least 2 years. I don't want to just play my senior year."

Bomkamp will graduate in December, and plans to enroll into college in the Spring semester. We will be keeping a close eye on this Baylor legacy as the football season rolls around.
