Evening everyone - thanks for stopping by.
The golden age of the quarterback continues on this
fall at Winona State.
Jack Nelson shows no signs of slowing down.
The senior entered this fall with nearly every meaningful
Warriors passing record.
And the NFL scouts are curious if he can pass the
test in the pros.
The playcall to go deep arrived early for Jack Nelson
at Winona State.
His second game as a freshman in 2013, Head Coach
Tom Sawyer made the call.
Nelson is in at quarterback.
The first play he throws in a monsoon.
He threw an 80 yard touchdown to Josh Mikes.
Put it right on his hands and Cam and I both looked
at each other and said -- I think we made a pretty
good choice here.
96 Touchdowns and over 10,000 yards later..
The quiet righty out of Byron, Minnesota is set to
go down as the top passer in Northern Sun history.
The NFL knows about it.
So far this fall..
22 pro teams visited Winona to get a look at the 6
foot 4, two hundred and 25 pounder.
?? How do Sunday's work Jack ??
Is it intimidating when these NFL teams come in for
It is but at the same time, it is fun.
A childhood dream becoming reality.
I've always dreamed of playing at the next level.
Now, it is a humbling experience, but at the same
time it is a real possibility.
When I first came here, I thought never and a million
Going shoeless today.
Do you own this place?
JN I like to think it's my spot.
But, at the same time it is our whole team's spot.
It's coach Sawyers spot.
that is the type of mentality we bring to this program.
The thing that I think of when I look at all of these
records, I could not have done it by myself.
I need an O-line to block for me.
Running backs, tight ends to block and catch for me.
Need receivers to catch it.
But as I was telling them last year, look its my name
up there but this is all of us.
What are the scouts saying?
JN They just like my body of work.
They like that I have the prototype size and weight
for an NFL quarterback.
They also see that I have the stats, I have the arm
strength and everything but they also like that I
have the leadership qualities too.
this just want to get to know me as a person, that
is the focus right now.
Thanks for the time Jack.
Good luck to the Warriors the rest of the way here.
