A defensive back, he converted to tailback for the 1991 season and won a spot in the starting lineup for 1992. During his senior season at Notre Dame, Brooks enjoyed massive success, rushing for 1,372 yards with an 8.0 yards per carry average while scoring 13 touchdowns. He finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting that year. 1991: 18 carries for 122 yards and 2 touchdowns. 1 catch for 4 yards. 1992: 167 carries for 1,343 yards and 13 touchdowns. 1 catch for 24 yards and 1 touchdown. He was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the second round of the 1993 NFL Draft. Brooks had a great rookie season with 1,063 rushing yards with a 4.8 average. The rest of his career didn't pan out and he was out of football by the end of the 1996 NFL season.

He spent three years with one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brooks is employed by Notre Dame as its Director of Student-Athlete Alumni Relations/Engagement, he is a fixture on Notre Dame's football post-game show and other productions of Fighting Irish Digital Media. He has five children, he is well known for a 20-yard touchdown run against rival University of Michigan in 1992. After catching a pitched ball on an option-right, Brooks broke six Wolverines tackles, the last of which knocked him unconscious before stumbling across the goal-line and collapsing face-first in the end zone; the Fighting Irish went up against Penn State in the final home game of 1992. A heavy snowfall throughout the first half made for a defensive struggle between the two perennial powerhouse programs. Trailing 16–9 with 4:25 left in the fourth quarter, senior quarterback Rick Mirer led the Irish on a 64-yard scoring drive, throwing to fullback Jerome Bettis on fourth down for a 3-yard score. Down by one point, Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz opted to go for the win.

Mirer was forced out of the pocket by the Penn State defense. Brooks, who had lined up as a slot receiver, worked across the field as the two primary receivers on the play were covered. Despite the fact that Brooks only had one reception all season, Mirer lofted the ball towards him in the back corner of the end zone. Brooks made a diving catch and the Irish prevailed 17–16, he was the winner of the 1995 and 1996 Madden Bowl

Icarus affair

The Icarus affair was an incident involving the murder of two Royal Navy sailors in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1867, leading to increased diplomatic tensions between the United Kingdom and the Bakumatsu period Tokugawa shogunate. On August 5 Robert Ford and John Hutchings, from the British screw sloop HMS Icarus, were killed by an unknown swordsman in the Marayuma entertainment precinct of Nagasaki, opened to trade and port calls by British ships since the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Amity and Commerce of 1858; the men, both aged 23, had been drinking, were sleeping near the entrance to a "tea house". The British Consul in Nagasaki, Marcus Flowers, blamed the Tokugawa shogunate for failing to protect the men and believed that the Kaientai led by Sakamoto Ryōma was behind the killings; this belief was based on rumours that the men had been seen in the area, combined with the departure of a Tosa steamer from Nagasaki soon after the incident. Shōgun Tokugawa Yoshinobu was pressured by Sir Harry Parkes, head of the British Legation in Edo, to find the culprit.

The shogunate was not disposed to dispute the evidence, since it conveniently weakened a feudal domain whose loyalty was uncertain. An agreement was reached that the governor of Nagasaki would be dismissed and 500 men would be sent to police the foreign quarter. Subsequently, Parkes sailed to Tosa, arriving in Kōchi September 3, 1867. There he was met by shogunate commissioners who had arrived earlier, to demand reparations from Tosa daimyō, Yamauchi Yōdō. Tosa official Gotō Shōjirō led negotiations on the Japanese side, after several days it was evident that the British lacked sufficient evidence to convict the Kaientai, it was decided to reconvene the investigations in Nagasaki, where more evidence was available, Parkes's assistant Ernest Satow was delegated to accompany the Tosa delegation back to Nagasaki on September 9. Once back at Nagasaki, the charges against the Kaientai were dropped on October 4, it was revealed one year that a samurai of the Fukuoka Domain had murdered the men, shortly after committed ritual suicide.

The Fukuoka clan subsequently paid compensation to the sailors' families in England. The affair diminished British trust and confidence in the shogunate and their control over Kyūshū, one of many factors leading to British support of the Satchō Alliance during the Boshin War of the Meiji Restoration the following year.

Assistenzarzt (military)

Assitenzarzt was a military rank in the Austrian-Hungary Common Army until 1918 and in German Reichswehr and Wehrmacht until 1945. It describes a qualified or licensed surgeon or dentist comparable to 2nd lieutenant or sub-lieutenant lieutenant NATO-Rangcode OF1b in anglophone armed forces. In the German Wehrmacht from 1933 until 1945 there were the OF1b-ranks Assitenzarzt, Assitenzapotheker, Assitenzveterinär, comparable to the Leutnant/Second lieutenant OF2b-rank. During wartime, the regular assignment of Assitenzarzt was the management of a battalion dressing station, supported by help surgeons. However, a battalion dressing station could be managed by an Oberarzt as well. In line to the so-called Reichsbesoldungsordnung, appendixes to the Salary law of the German Empire of 1927, the comparative ranks were as follows: C 8/C 9 Oberleutnant, Leutnant Leutnant Oberleutnant zur See Leutnant zur See Oberarzt Assistenzarzt Marineoberassistenzarzt, introduced June 26, 1935 Marineassistenzarzt Oberveterinär VeterinärThe piping on shoulder straps shows the Waffenfarbe, corresponding to the appropriate military service, branch, or special force.

The corps colour of the Military Health System in German armed forces was traditional dark blue, of the veterinarian service carmine red. This tradition was continued by the medical service corps in Heer and Luftwaffe of the Reichswehr and Wehrmacht. However, the corps colour of the Waffen-SS HSS was cornflower blue; the manner of formal addressing of military surgeons/dentists with the rank Assitenzarzt was, "Herr Assitenzarzt". In the Austria-Hungarian Common Army there were the OF1b-ranks Assitenzarzt and Assitenztierarz until 1918; that particular ranks were comparable to the Leutnant/2nd lieutenant OF1b-rank as well
