Hawks raise Ben VanSumeren for the today’s game versus Cowboys
The Hawks raised new kid on the block linebacker Ben VanSumeren from the training crew for Sunday’s down against the Dallas Ranchers.
VanSumeren, who endorsed with the Birds as an undrafted free specialist, has spent the aggregate of the time to date on the training crew. This denotes his first gameday rise, getting him ready to make his NFL debut.
The 23-year-old VanSumeren drove the NFL with 26 handles in the preseason to procure a spot on the training crew.
The 6-foot-2, 231-pound linebacker hails from Straight City, Michigan, and played his school football at Michigan and Michigan State, playing in 39 absolute games (13 beginnings) and recording 100 handles, two sacks, and two pass redirections. In the wake of beginning as a fullback, VanSumeren progressed to the guarded side of the ball, and in his last school season with the Spartans, he posted 81 handles, three for misfortune, while beginning in 10 of 11 games.
The Birds precluded four players for Sunday’s down – tight end Award Calcaterra (blackout), watch/focus Cam Jurgens (foot), cornerback Bradley Roby (shoulder), and running back Boston Scott (individual matter).
