Meet the 26-Year-Old Wide Receiver Entering His 8th College Football Season

Bradley Rozner played his first college football season in 2016. Eight years later, the 26-year-old is still going strong.

Someone has officially passed National Lampoon's Van Wilder for the most years spent in college.

His name is Bradley Rozner, a college football wide receiver who will suit up for the 2023 season with the North Carolina State Wolfpack. This season will mark his EIGHTH season playing collegiate football.

Fans are already calling him the new Stetson Bennett.

Rozner, who started playing college in 2016 with Cisco Junior College, was injured his first two seasons.

As the tweet from College Sports Only shows, here's his college football timeline:

  • 2016: Injury RS at Cisco Junior College
  • 2017: Injury RS at Cisco J.C.
  • 2018: Redshirt FR at Cisco J.C.
  • 2019: Redshirt SO at Cisco J.C.
  • 2020: Sat out COVID year w/ injury
  • 2021: RS JR at Rice
  • 2022: RS SR at Rice
  • 2023: Bonus COVID year at NC State

With the Rice Owls this past season, Rozner caught 44 passes for 876 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Now with the Wolfpack, the 26-year-old Rozner will look to add more stats to his resume?.

Do you think Rozner has a chance to get drafted into the NFL? He's 26 years old now, but he's 6-foot-5, 200 pounds, and can stretch the field vertically. Those are certainly some traits that NFL teams would like to have. What's funny is that he's older than NFL stars like Justin Jefferson and Jalen Hurts.

I don't know about you, but I'll certainly be watching for him this college football season.

The Wolfpack's season kicks off Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. ET on the road against the UConn Huskies.
