Early Years[edit]

Bromley was not raised by his biological parents. His father was in jail for murder, his mother had a drug addiction and gave up custody of Jay to his aunt and uncle when he was four months old.[1] He attended Flushing High School in Queens, New York, where he was named to the New York Post All-City First Team and was an all-borough selection following his senior season. He recorded 60 tackles and 12 sacks as a senior, while serving as team captain. He recorded over 40 sacks in his high school.

College career[edit]

He did not receive much recruiting attention, and only had a walk-on option at Stony Brook University. By June of his senior year, he was without any scholarship offers. However, after an invite to the Outback Steakhouse Empire Challenge, Bromley dominated the event, earning himself MVP honors. In the coming days, he received a scholarship from the University of Syracuse, which he accepted.[2] During his career at Syracuse, Bromley recorded 121 tackles, including 25.5 for loss, 14 sacks, and three forced fumbles. After leading his team in tackles for loss (14.5) and sacks (10) as a senior, he was named a third-team All-ACC selection.
