WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Washington Redskins' All-Pro linebacker and former Purdue football great Ryan Kerrigan was back at his alma mater Friday to host the 12th Boiler Golf Outing, which helps raise money to fund scholarships for the 12th Boiler Scholarship Fund and the National Football Foundation Scholarship.
Kerrigan was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and a First-Team All-American during his final season at Purdue in 2010.
Kerrigan just finished his second season with the Redskins, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2012 and helping lead Washington to an NFC playoff berth.
"We had a great finish to the season last season," Kerrigan said. "Obviously, things didn't end the way we liked against Seattle. But this is definitely a good building block for next season."
Kerrigan also met first-year Purdue Head Football Coach Darrell Hazell Friday and came away with a highly positive opinion of the Boilermakers' gridiron leader.
"I'm very impressed. Every time I hear him (Hazell) speak and every letter I get in the mail from him, I'm more and more impressed," Kerrigan said. "And more and more excited for what Purdue football has in store."
A Purdue football player was arrested for alcohol-related offenses over the weekend.
