Bentley graduate Mackenzy Bernadeau will make his first start at left guard for the Carolina Panthers against the Miami Dolphins tonight, according to a report by the Charlotte Observer.

“I feel I'm ready,” he told the Observer. “I've been here a year and a half now. I've played behind these guys for a while. I've learned from all of them.”

Bernadeau, a guard and center, is the first athlete from Bentley University to play in any of the four major professional leagues. He made his first appearance in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

You can watch tonight's game between the Panthers and Dolphins at 8 p.m. on the NFL Network.
