Worden visits Huskers

After camping with Nebraska this summer, Scottsbluff senior Luke Worden was on hand to watch the Huskers take on Arkansas State.

One of the better players in the state of Nebraska for the 2013 class is Scottsbluff's Luke Worden. The athlete has done it all for the Bearcats this season and has helped him team push their record to 4-0 on the year.

On Saturday, Worden was the sidelines for the Nebraska/Arkansas State game and had a great time after camping with the Huskers this summer.

"I enjoyed the brunch and getting to talk to Coach Joseph and Coach Fisher. I really enjoyed the game day atmosphere in Lincoln and it was even better on the sidelines for pre-game," said Worden. "I receive all the UNL updates in the mail and game day invites for home games. I have also kept up with Coach Joseph by email since the camp this summer."

A 5-foot-9, 180 pound prospect, Worden put up big time numbers both on offense and defense this season.

"I have had two interceptions both for touchdowns (30 and 70 yards) and averaged about eight yards a touch on offense," said the 2013 prospect. I have a total of five touchdowns on the year. I'm also averaging about 20 yards a punt return. On defense, I'm playing linebacker and safety – averaging around eight to ten tackles a game. Most teams throw away from me and run away from my side."

This week, No. 2 ranked Scottsbluff (Omaha World Herald rankings) plays No. 1 Aurora (Lincoln Journal Star rankings) in Class B action.

"The schools who have showed me the most interest lately have been South Dakota, South Dakota State, Ohio, Tulsa, Wyoming, Colorado State and Nebraska.

"Last week I went to CSU. I enjoyed it. I really like the coaching staff and they were playing NDSU, who is also recruiting me. They said I'm next on their board for a scholarship at cornerback, so it was nice to get to watch them play as well."

Big Red Report will check in with Worden later on in the season.
