In 1996, a leader from Millard South in Omaha, Nebraska found the Bearcats. Aaron Becker compiled a highly decorated career while playing defensive end at Northwest. He was twice named All-America, three times he earned First Team All-MIAA accolades and was a part of four MIAA Championships during his tenure. He is third on the all-time tackles for a loss list and eighth all-time for sacks in a career at Northwest. Tack on two consecutive National Championships in 1998 and 1999 and Becker is truly one of the best defensive ends to ever wear the Bearcat green and white.
Prior to joining the Northwest squad, Becker made a name for himself in high school as Omaha World-Herald and Associated Press first-team All-State as well as a USA Today honorable mention All-America.
He was the second of three Becker brothers to make their way onto the field during the rise of Bearcat football. The Becker family helped capture five MIAA Championships and two National Championships during their time at Northwest.
Today, Aaron is a firefighter in Kansas City, Missouri at Station 10.
