Northwestern had a rough season this year, but the Wildcats are reportedly set to get one key player back for 2020.

According to Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune, linebacker Paddy Fisher will return for his senior season. That is big news for Northwestern as Fisher has been one of the key pieces for the Wildcat defense since his freshman season.

Fisher posted back-to-back 100 tackle seasons in 2017-18 before a slight dip in production this year. He put up 88 total tackles this year which still tied with fellow linebacker Blake Gallagher for the team lead. Fisher also had six tackles for loss and a sack.

For his career, Fisher has 315 total tackles, 20 for loss, two sacks, three interceptions, and nine forced fumbles. Hopefully, Fisher and the Wildcats bounce back from a three-win campaign this season.
