Tampa Bay 10-time Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Brooks will go straight from Thursday’s practice at One Buccaneer Place to the Brooks-DeBartolo Collegiate High School for the school’s first open house.

Brooks will personally give a tour of the new school, which has 300 students in grades 9-11. It is the only charter high school in Hillsborough County that helps high school students accelerate credit earning at the secondary level.

Brooks will be on hand at the Brooks-DeBartolo Collegiate High School open house, which begins at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday. In fact, Brooks will also give a tour of the school.

BDCHS, which is located at 11602 N. 15th Street off of Fowler Avenue in Tampa, is still accepting applications. Students are welcome to attend the open house.
