My school: York.
Positions: Offensive right tackle, defensive tackle.
This week: The Class B third-ranked Dukes take a 6-1 record into Friday’s game against Seward.
Career highlight play: “Last year I made an interception against Seward. John Erwin, one of our outside linebackers, he went in for a pass rush and he tipped it and I saw the ball in the air and I just jumped up. I knew I was going to catch it, but I was thinking about what I was going to do with it, how to turn and catch it. I caught it, and suddenly this guy came out of nowhere and just picked me up and laid me down. He was a wrestler, so he just went down low and picked me up, and this other guy came out of nowhere and hit me. That was my first interception.”
Other sports: Wrestling or basketball (for the conditioning).
The college life
Projected position at NU: Defensive tackle.
First contact with the Huskers: “Right after the Iowa Hawkeyes offered me a scholarship, colleges knew about me and were following me on Twitter. After I got an offer from Iowa, (Nebraska defensive line coach) John Parrella hit me up real quick. We just talked, and he wanted me to come down for camp, so I came down for camp and they were really interested in me. When I went down there for camp I really wanted to go to Nebraska, so I gave it my all during the camp. Right after the camp, John Parrella brought me over and said, ‘Hey, I’m going to give you a scholarship.’ I was super-excited, so I told him I’m going to commit now.”
Date committed: June 17, 2016.
If I wrote my recruiting profile
Ht.: 289 pounds.
Mel Kiper would say: “Good at taking on double-teams. Playing in the 3-4 defense gets double- or triple-teamed a lot. Can hold his ground.”
On his start in high school football: “My freshmen year I was down in McCool Junction still. When I was in eighth grade, York was in the state championship, and I wanted to take things further with football so I thought York was a great place for me to be and would get me where I needed to be, so I came up here and everything worked out great here.”
If I could play a different position for one game: “I’d want to play running back. I want to run the ball. I want to truck somebody.”
