Nelson Looking For Attention

Sophomore quarterback Kato Nelson came up big for Hialeah (FLA) Champagnat last season as he helped lead them to a state title. He performed well at the recent South Florida Express 7on7 tryout camp.

Hialeah Champagnat is coming off a state championship season in Florida, and they will have several top underclassmen returning for next season.

Sophomore quarterback Kato Nelson (6-foot, 170-pounds) will be back to lead the high-powered offensive attack. Last year, Nelson threw for over 2,400 yards, with 31 touchdown throws.

"Last season was amazing for me and I was happy with my play," Nelson stated. "Everyone tells me that was pretty good for a sophomore, but I know I have to be even better next year. I can make plays in the pocket, but I can also get outside and either throw or run the football."

"I try to do whatever my team needs me to do," he added. "I scored five touchdowns on the ground, so I can run. I want to get better and more consistent throwing the deep ball."

Although he has no offers, Nelson still has two more seasons of high school left to prove he is college material.

"Nobody has offered yet, but that's not too surprising only being a sophomore," he explained. "I'm going to go to as many camps as possible to get noticed, and playing 7on7 will help me too."

"My favorite schools would be Florida State and Miami," he continued. "Florida State is coming off the national championship, and they have a great program. For Miami, I know a lot of players there, like Duke Johnson and Tracy Howard, so I would be very comfortable there."
