Terrence Brooks, right, rushes down the field alongside a teammate on special teams coverage during a game earlier this season. The Dunnellon native is now in his fourth season in the NFL, playing for his third team in that time span. The former third-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens, Brooks is doing what he can to take advantage of every chance he gets on the field or off of it. “Every time I get an opportunity, I’m trying to capitalize on it,” he said.

TAMPA — The Dunnellon High School football team made history last Friday with its most one-sided playoff victory in a 49-7 win over Trenton. Two days later, it was a homecoming of sorts for a former Tiger star.

As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosted the New York Jets at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, fourth-year safety Terrence Brooks made a return to the state where he made a name for himself.

Now he has a message for Dunnellon as the Tigers head into their Region 2 final at Bradford.
