Last season Tevin Homer played in the Arena Football League for the Albany Empire where he earned a championship ring. In Arena Bowl XXXII, Homer was the game’s leading tackler as he recorded 11 tackles, one assist, and defended one pass in Albany’s 45-27 victory over the Philadelphia Soul. Homer enjoyed a fine season with 80 tackles 14 assists, six passes defended, one forced fumble, and one interception.
What made Homer’s 2019 campaign so impressive last season was his lack of experience leading up to last season. Homer, who checks in at 6’2” 190 lbs., played defensive back at Park Vista Community High School in Florida. A native of Boynton Beach, Homer enrolled at Arkansas Baptist College but did not play again until 2015 as a junior at Florida Atlantic University. He appeared in one game and then just two more the following season. He finished his career with two tackles and one assist.
Homer entered the NFL Draft and was signed by the Washington Redskins after going undrafted in 2017. In February of 2018, he signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. He then joined the Albany Empire last season.
Tevin’s brother Travis is a rookie running back with the Seattle Seahawks. Travis was a sixth-round pick out of Miami in the 2019 NFL Draft with pick number 204.
