High school

My school: Pine Creek (Colorado Springs, Colorado)

Positions: Receiver, running back, safety, punter and kicker.

This week: Pine Creek takes a 3-0 record and the No. 1 ranking in the state’s second-largest class into Saturday’s game against Pueblo West. Pine Creek has won 28 consecutive games and the past two state titles.

Rankings: A three-star prospect by Rivals.com, Domann was the second-ranked player in Colorado during the preseason.

Highlight play: “Last game, my brother, Brock, the quarterback, threw a 51-yard go route to me, and the safety came over and helped and I actually caught the ball over two defenders and got the touchdown. It’s on Twitter. It’s pretty cool.”

Other sport: Basketball.

The college life

The moment I knew I wanted to be a Husker … : “I was in California on a family vacation and I kind of had an idea that maybe Nebraska was where I wanted to go. Then Nebraska got an outside linebacker commitment, I think it was Greg Simmons, and I remember Coach (Trent) Bray saying they were only going to take one at the position. After Simmons committed, my heart dropped, and I was so upset. So I called Coach Bray and he said he’d talk to Coach (Mark) Banker and Coach (Mike) Riley and see what they wanted to do. That’s when they decided they wanted to bring me on as a defensive athlete. I was so happy, and excited that I get to go to Nebraska.”

Quick hits

On his dad, Craig, being a sports agent: “I got to go to Arizona Cardinals training camp in 2009, the year after they played against the Steelers in the Super Bowl. I remember I got autographs from Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald, Kurt Warner, Matt Leinart, Edgerrin James. I jumped in the ice tub with Eric Green, my dad’s client at the time. We put a bet on it, and he gave me some money for jumping in the cold tub with him. Straight from Arizona we went over to the Chargers’ training camp and I was out on the field and LaDainian Tomlinson is walking by and I had his football card in my hand and I got his autograph. That trip was pretty unreal for me.”

On being the kicker for his high school team: “I love it; it’s fun. After I score a touchdown, I just go and kick the extra point. Whenever I can get on the field, I embrace it. I played soccer from 4 years old to eighth grade. I did everything under the moon with that. In practice I’ve hit a 60-yard field goal. As a freshman, I hit a 45-yarder in a game.”
