Nate Hughes, a 5-foot-11, 200-pound athlete from Antioch, Illinois will be a prospect to watch in 2004. Hughes will be a two-year varsity starter in 2004.
"Nate should have been on varsity for three years but we kept him down on the sophomores because they needed a quarterback." Antioch coach Del Pechauer said.
"This is a make or break year for Nate. We expect big things from him but it will be up to the college coaches where he ends up.
"Nate's not a D-1 quarterback but he could be a very good safety at the next level. He'll play four different positions for us." Pechauer said.
Hughes says he'd like to play his college football in Fort Collins, Colorado.
"I like Colorado State a lot," said Hughes. "There's nothing better than Fort Collins. I've visited Colorado and Colorado State already.
"Northwestern and Arizona State have been sending a lot of mail. My favorites are Colorado, Colorado State, Notre Dame, Northwestern, Purdue, Washington State and Nebraska."
Hughes had 800 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns in 2003. He played quarterback, running back and wide receiver on offense. As a safety, Hughes had 40 tackles and three interceptions.
Nathan Hughes says he'll camp at Colorado State, Northwestern and Nebraska this summer.
