East Carolina University alumnus Michael Brooks will join the ranks of former ECU Pirate football players who wear a Super Bowl championship ring.
Brooks was on the winning Seattle Seahawks team for the Feb. 2 contest as a rookie defensive lineman.
Originally assigned to the practice squad, 22-year-old Brooks was recently promoted for game play after two players were injured.
A native of Roxboro, Brooks majored in criminal justice with a concentration in homeland security. ECU Pirates now have five Pirates with a Super Bowl championship ring within the last four years.
