Smooth transition for Nerness

Smooth transition for Nerness

Huntersville (N.C.) SouthLake Christian will try to win their second straight state championship this fall. Recently, the Eagles got a big boast when defensive end and Iowa State commit Seth Nerness transferred to the school.

”I’m already adjusted,” said Seth Nerness. “The transition has been smooth and it’s just been great. I can’t believe how much talent there is on this year’s team.

”I’ve enjoyed meeting new people. It’s also been great to do something new – going from eight-man to 11-man football. It’s been a good challenge learning all the terminology and schemes.”

Despite the move, Nerness said his commitment to Iowa State remains firm.

”I’m committed,” said Nerness. “It’s close to home and I have a good connection with defensive end’s coach Stan Eggen, who also coached Von Miller at Texas A&M.”

With his recruitment behind him, Nerness is focused on having a great senior season.

”We just want to be the best we can be,” he said. “We have high expectations for ourselves. We know how good we can be. Now, we just have to execute.

”I’d love to help us win a state championship. I’ve been a part of two teams in the last three years who were state runner-up, so it would be great to get a ring.” Recommended Stories
