Matt Bahr started his career with Kent State as a safety; a position, he says, that was very watered down. After adding some major pounds during the off-season, Bahr will be making a transition this fall from safety to linebacker. He says this gives him the potential for some serious playing time with the Flashes when the 2017 season begins!
During his time at Kent, Bahr has earned two MAC Distinguished scholar athlete awards and has made the Academic All-MAC team twice! Recently Bahr earned the Leo Strang Award in the spring for the highest GPA upperclassmen!
