Schany "sees" spring game

A name that is certainly on the rise is Jake Schany. Schany is a linebacker that could play either inside or outside at the next level at 6-foot-2.5 and 215-pounds. This weekend Schany was in Lincoln for the spring game, but didn't get to actually see any of the game. Schany is going to be back in Lincoln for camp though later in June.

Today is a busy day for Jake Schany. Schany, a linebacker from Blair (Nebr.) was in Lincoln and had to listen to the Nebraska spring game on the radio because he had to leave early to get back home.

"I had to leave early because we have prom tonight," Schany said. "We listened to the game though on the radio on our way back home. Sounds like a great game."

Schany got to town and took another tour, ate lunch and then headed down to the field. He did get to see the tunnel walk before the game.

"I got there this morning around 10:30. They kind of gave me another tour, we went and ate and then we went down to the field for pre-game. The tunnel walk was cool."

It was shortly after the tunnel walk though that Schany found himself back in the car and headed home. It was just a bad coincidence that prom and the spring game were on the same day.

"I actually didn't get to see any of the game. We had to go back pretty soon. Right after the tunnel walk we had to get back because I have prom tonight."

Schany was able to catch up briefly with the linebacker position coach before the game. "I briefly said ‘Hey!' to him and I got a couple of minutes with him before he had to head into pre-game meetings."

There are plans to make it back to Lincoln for summer camp, but it won't be for one of the sessions that you might think. "I think that I will be there actually for the kicking camp on June 12th. I am just not available for the other dates."

Besides Nebraska Schany has made plans to make it to the Iowa State camp and he also started to pick up interest from Stanford. Stanford, like Iowa State, said that an offer could come after a good camp performance.

"I will be heading to camp at Iowa State and the Stanford staff called my coach and I called him back. They said that they liked me and if I could get there and perform well that they would offer me."
