Northwestern LB Paddy Fisher hits incredible career milestone in Citrus Bowl
Paddy Fisher has added to his legendary status as a Northwestern linebacker.
During Friday afternoon’s Citrus Bowl, Fisher hit an incredible career milestone, registering his 400th career tackle as a member of the Wildcats. He entered the postseason contest against Auburn with 393 total stops credited to his name.
By the time the fourth quarter hit in Orlando, Fisher had tallied 7 stops to hit that 400 mark. It’s a pretty remarkable feat for a linebacker who has been a key player in Northwestern’s defense for the past four seasons.
