Kenny Golladay becomes first Huskie to reach Pro Bowl since 2011

DeKALB — Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was named to the NFL Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday, becoming the first NIU alumus to reach the Pro Bowl since 2011.

Golladay, added to the roster to replace an injured Chris Goodwin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led the NFL with a career high of 11 touchdown catches to go with 1,190 yards.

The 2017 NIU graduate Golladay had touchdown catches in nine different games with five touchdown catches coming in the fourth quarter.

Golladay is the first former Huskies player to reach the Pro Bowl since running back Michael Turner earned the honor in 2011.
