Derrick Barnes, a Purdue University Boilermakers linebacker and former Holy Cross High School standout, is among 2021 Senior Bowl invitees.
Earlier this month, Barnes was Purdue's recipient of the Big Ten's Sportsmanship Award.
Barnes was named second-team All-Big Ten by the conference coaches, and third-team All-Big Ten by the media. He led Purdue with 54 total tackles (including 40 solo) and was second on the team in tackles for loss with 5.5, with an interception.
