Air Force, San Jose State, New Mexico State.
Those were the division-one programs that offered Peoria (Az.) Centennial center Jake Abbott. But it was FCS Northern Arizona that won the services of the 6-3 275 pound Abbott.
Many kids struggle with the choice to play division-one vesus 1AA ball but it was Abbott's faith that led him to NAU. He says, "NAU is where I felt God leading me. I know I had offers to bigger schools but when it came down to it, that's where I felt His peace and so that's where I will be playing on Saturdays."
Other key factors that helped Jake pick NAU were "coaching staff, players and the environment at NAU."
