On Monday the Nebraska coaching staff was at Georgia State, kicking off their first satellite camp of the year. In attendance was Woodstock (GA) Etowah high school safety prospect Stuart Head, a 2017 safety with multiple Division 1 offers.
I had a lot of fun at the camp, learning new things and competing against great players,” said Head. “I'm interested in Nebraska and my head coach is from there. He suggested it to me and I was all for it.”
Head is coached by Dave Svehla, who coached at Lincoln Northeast for seven years before announcing his resignation in 2009.
“I feel as though I did well. It was my first time meeting Nebraska's coaches so I think I left a good impression,” said Head. “The atmosphere of Nebraska in general is attractive. I love their die-hard fan base, and my coach has described it to be like no other.”
“I try to really appreciate those who believe in me and those who have helped me to get to this level,” said Head. “It means a lot, but I have to give credit to my coaches and graduated teammates who coached me up to be a better player.”
A former quarterback, Head has only played safety for one year, but it hasn’t deterred college coaches. In 2014, as a sophomore, Head recorded 140 tackles, three interceptions, 15 pass breakups, and caused two fumbles.
