Welcome to the Cave!

Hello there! If you’re reading this, it means you’re on my website. I’m Brian Folkerts, center for the Carolina Panthers. My job is to read defensive coverages and protect our QB. Many say that centers are some of the smartest guys on the team. Who am I to disagree?!

I’m originally from Florissant, Missouri and went to college at Washburn University in Topeka, KS. Go Ichabods! Ichabod Washburn was an early benefactor to the school and the name stuck. I love it!

I hope my site will give you a better idea of who I am off the field. I’m about to get my hair cut for the first time in four years and donate it to a foundation called Wigs for Kids. I really enjoy doing whatever I can in the community and figured why not get a haircut and help out at the same time!

My nickname for the longest time has been “Caveman” (guess why?!) but soon I will be the freshest looking Caveman you’ve ever seen! Follow me on Twitter and Instagram for more.
