Buies Creek — Former Campbell standout Greg Milhouse, Jr. has signed with the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle is the second NFL stop for the former Campbell defensive tackle (2014-15), initially signing with the New York Giants in 2016 as an undrafted free agent. Milhouse played with the Giants through the NFL preseason, eventually signing with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League to close the year. Milhouse also opened the 2017 season with the Roughriders.
Milhouse, along with long snapper Danny Dillon, became the first Camels to sign contracts with a NFL franchise in 2016.
The Garner, N.C. native was a two-time All-PFL defensive lineman, including a First Team selection in 2015. He recorded 49 total tackles with 12.5 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks this season, posting at least one tackle for loss in 10 of 11 games.
Milhouse was a participant in the 2016 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, Calif. and ranks among Campbell’s career top-10 in sacks and tackles for loss after just two seasons, transferring from Appalachian State.
The defensive tackle helped the Camels rank fifth in the nation in total defense in 2015 (279.3 per game), standing third in team sacks per game (3.55) and ninth in scoring defense (17.7). The team shattered program records for all three categories, adding single season marks for tackles for loss (85.0) and total sacks (38.0).
