    quality pick up for the huskers…i played against this guy his senior year at lincoln east. we beat him on the final play of the quarter finals when we flipped him just short of the endzone…if he gets the chance he will do some good things

    I think any player than can switch back and forth between a quarterback and linebacker is an excellent addition to the Husker football team.

    he was a senior when i was a freshman at east and since he left the team has gone downhill he is a superb choice for the huskers

    I have had the pleasure of working with Jim and get to know him a bit. If his passion for life is the same for football then he will excel nicely with the huskers. His commitment to goals is genuine and that will work wonders in practice and translate to the field. Good luck Jim and hit’em hard !
