Former West Florence High standout Brandon Bostick is entering his third NFL season with the Green Bay Packers. Bostick says he's ready to win the starting tight end position.
Packer's head coach Mike McCarthy says Bostick is the best blocking tight end on the team.
Last season, the 25-year old Bostick posted his best season as a professional with seven receptions for 120 yards and one touchdown for the Packers.
Bostick's first career touchdown came during week 10 at Lambeau Field against the Philadelphia Eagles in a 27-13 loss..
The former Newberry College star was signed as an undrafted free agent by Green Bay in 2012.
Bostick's season was cut short in 2013 with a foot injury, but he tells WPDE he's ready for the upcoming season, "It feels good I'm back to 100 percent, it was a long five months not being able to train or be there for my teammates, but I'm back now and I'm training for the upcoming season and hopefully be injury free."
The West Florence native was a WPDE All-Zone selection in 2006.
