Julius Forte is entering his final season as a Bull and hoping to make it a special one.

Julius Forte – Redshirt senior – 6’2” 253 lbs. – St. Petersburg, FL (Boca Ciega HS) – Defensive end

2012: Forte appeared in 11 games last season, making 1 start.  He totaled 14 tackles (1.5 TFL) including a half sack, 2 PBU, and forced one fumble.  In 2011, he made 21 tackles, 3 sacks, and 2 QBH.

2013 Bull Rush Projection: Forte is looking to end his career on a high note, whether it is starting or being a back-up.  Forte has battled in the past for a starting job, but now with Lynch taking over one end spot, the battle for the other starting job is going to be intense.  If Ryne Giddins continues to have issues with his shoulder (same shoulder from last year) Forte should get a lot of snaps this fall at DE and could win the job out.
