With the sixteenth pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers selected former Patriot and Florida State University Seminole defensive end and outside linebacker Brian Burns.
The New England Patriots have ended another Super Bowl Sunday with yet another ring to add to their collection. However, this victory, in particular, resulted in an accomplishment the other victories have not.
Former Heritage and Florida State University’s (FSU) star defensive end, Brian Burns, declared for the NFL draft Dec. 3.
The Heritage Patriots rolled past the No. 1 seed Rockledge Raiders 31-14, to advance to the Regional Finals. Although an 11 point-underdog, the Patriots upset the Raiders in part to an explosive run game and stingy defense.
Despite the lower seeding, the Patriots defeated the No. 4 seeded Westwood Panthers 37-14 in the opening round of the FHSAA Class 5A State Tournament.
