"That was really exciting," Lopina said. "They are in my top two already with Notre Dame."
"Nebraska's coach is Bill Callahan and I am friends with his son. So there is actually a relationship with Coach Callahan in a way. They are putting in the West Coast Offense at Nebraska and they need a quarterback."
Kevin may just be their man. Through six games Kevin threw for over 700 yards with four touchdowns while gaining another 350 yards on the ground. The De La Salle offense runs a good mixture of option as well as a balanced passing attack. Being able to run the 4--yard dash in 4.6 seconds helps out.
The pressure may be on Kevin to keep all of De La Salle's streaks alive. They don't return a lot of starters and last year's senior class was very talented and were on the field a lot. Kevin thinks that they will be OK and that the seniors-to-be have a lot of athletes to fall back on.
Lopina was quick about scheduling a trip out to Nebraska. He will be in Lincoln to see the spring game on April 17. He will be returning to Lincoln to take part in an elite quarterback camp held by the Nebraska coaches. He will also be attending the Nike camp on May 22.
