Wofford College http://wfae.org en Checking In On The Long Shot Rookie http://wfae.org/post/checking-long-shot-rookie <p>A little over a week ago we met a rookie wide receiver trying to earn a spot on the Carolina Panthers. His name is Brenton Bersin. He's a long shot from Charlotte who signed as a free agent, meaning he wasn't drafted by any team. His next big hurdle is to make it through the team's first cut on August 27.&nbsp;</p><p>When we first met Brenton Bersin, he was catching kickoffs in the Panthers walk-through practices down in Spartanburg at Wofford College.&nbsp;</p><p>Those surroundings were very familiar. He had been a stand-out wide receiver at Wofford and graduated back in May.</p> Fri, 17 Aug 2012 04:00:00 +0000 Tanner Latham 3049 at http://wfae.org Checking In On The Long Shot Rookie
