03/22/2012 - Nevada Pro Day: Versatile defender Brett Roy also boasted a significantly improved time in the 40-yard dash. Roy, who signed with Nevada as a safety then moved to linebacker, then defensive end as he gained weight and eventually moved inside to defensive tackle, participated in linebacker drills, himself. Roy was clocked between 4.86-4.90 in the 40-yard dash Wednesday after his fastest time in Indianapolis was a 5.0 at 6-3, 275 pounds. Unlike Johnson and Marshall, each of whom fared well in positional drills, Roy's inexperience was obvious as he struggled with balance when changing directions while going through linebacker tests. Among the heavy-hitters attending Nevada's workout were a trio of College Scouting Directors -- Green Bay's John Dorsey, Oakland's Jon Kingdon and Philadelphia's Anthony Patch. Also present were Philadelphia's and Miami's linebackers' coaches Mike Caldwell (Eagles) and George Edwards (Dolphins). - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

01/06/2012 - Those who knew Brett Roy growing up in Yucaipa say it's no surprise that he evolved into a 2011 football All-American and a can't miss high selection in April's National Football League draft. Immediately after his University of Nevada lost to Sout??hern Mississippi in the recent Hawaii Bowl, Roy signed a professional management contract with Marc Limnoriidae of the National Sports Agency. He said that he talked to about 30 other agents. Roy was interviewed while in Yucaipa for the Christmas holiday. The 6'4" and 280 lb. defensive tackle then flew from Yucaipa to New Jersey on Dec. 29 to prepare for the NFU combine under the direction of trainer Joe Deragon, known as the "Pro Maker" who offers advanced training to professional football prospects. Roy will stay on the east coast to prepare for the East West Shrine college All-Star game, where he will play on Jan. 21 in St. Petersburg, Flay. According to the Shriner's web site, 80 percent of those who played last year are now in the NFL. "It's getting serious," said Roy. Most NFL experts feel that Roy, a 2007 Yucaipa High School graduate, will be drafted anywhere from the first to the fifth round. - Harvey M. Kahn, Yucaipa/Calimesa News Mirror

12/24/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: DT Brett Roy made a strong case for WAC Defensive Player of the Year. Roy had 64 tackles, including 18.5 for loss and 10 sacks. He also had six pass breakups. - The Sports Xchange

12/06/2011 - 2011 ALL-WAC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DL-Brett Roy, Nevada, Sr., has been selected All-WAC Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as voted upon by the WAC's eight head coaches. - Nevada football

10/10/2011 - WEEK 6 WAC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Nevada defensive tackle Brett Roy, a senior from Yucaipa, Calif. (Yucaipa HS), set a career-high with 11 tackles, including four for a loss (one sack) of 13 yards, in Nevada's 37-0 win over UNLV. Roy helped the Nevada defense hold UNLV to just 110 yards of total offense and one completion in the game. It was the first shutout in the 37-game history of the series. Roy leads the nation in tackles for loss with 2.5 per game. Also nominated on defense: senior linebacker Jay Dudley, Louisiana Tech; and senior linebacker Bobby Wagner, Utah State. - WAC football

08/29/2011 - Defensive tackle Brett Roy was one of the most underrated players in the WAC last season, head coach Chris Ault said. The 6-foot-4, 280-pound senior should get plenty of attention this year without standout defensive end Dontay Moch around. "I thought he was an all-conference guy last year," Ault said. "No question he was underrated. He became one of the leaders of that defensive front last year. He had a really good season for us. He got better every game." Roy and Willie Faataualofa (6-foot-3, 295) give the Wolf Pack a nice par of tackles. Zack Madonick is recovering form a knee injury. - The Sports Xchange
