Furrha Takes In Gameday at GVSU

Grand Valley has hosted several recruits during their home games this year and the Lakers have not disappointed, winning both home games. For their game against Indianapolis, they hosted one of the top high school quarterbacks in the state in Ann Arbor Pioneer's Nader Furrha.

Ann Arbor Pioneer quarterback Nader Furrha got to experience opening day at Lubbers Stadium a couple weeks back. Furrha had been to GVSU once, earlier this summer, for the Lakers' summer camp.

However, this visit was a little different as he had the opportunity to check out what Grand Valley football is all about during their first game against Indianapolis and he came away impressed.

"It was really nice, the campus was great and the student section was sick," he said of the visit, "GVSU is sweet, they're really good."

He also had a chance to see the new Laker Turf Building, which had not yet been completed during camp.

"It's so big," he marveled, "it's really nice."

Furrha and his Pioneer squad are coming off a big upset win over previously unbeaten Howell. Furrha lead the way in that contest, going six of nine passing for 113 yards. He also rushed for 69 yards and a touchdown.

It is performances like that which has colleges interested in him and he has continued to receive attention from several FBS programs.

"I talk to Eastern and Western still," he said, "I'm about to send out a highlight tape of my first four games. I'm going to Michigan this Saturday. Coach Magee called me to remind me he still wants me to walk-on."

Even with that interest, GVSU remains a legitimate option for Furrha and he is already making plans to come back for a second game later in the season.

"I'm going to come on an official visit," he explained, "I think at the end of the season."
