    Re: New commit: Seth Nerness.

    Really excited about Nerness and his athleticism. Should grow nicely into a great pass rushing defensive end.

    Think he is here because his wife got a job in Des Moines so took over the Scout site as an opportunity. My guess she is the breadwinner right now (as likely with any journalist) so my guess is he will continue in some avenue in these parts unless a much bigger opportunity elswhere. Always harder to justify moving when two salaries are part of the equation.

    There's a bunch of kids from tiny towns/schools going D1 this year, it seems.

    Re: New commit: Seth Nerness.

    Starting out with great size. He doesn't need to play at a high weight, but will probably play in the 250s if he stays at DE. If he plays LB then high 230's or low 240's would be great. Can't stay the same weight at play LB as is, that is too small, RB's are that size. Luke Knott's biggest problem, (other than injury or youth) is his weight. Needs to beef it up some.

    Didn't Chad Greenway play 8 or 6-man in South Dakota? I'd say he turned out OK.

    That would be Fremont-Mills, Tabor, in 2011. Ironic you bring that up on a page about Mr. Nerness, as it was his school that got the receiving end of that 81 pt. drubbing (Murray).

    A guy named Dallas Clark went to Twin River Valley of Bode, which became an 8-man school after he graduated. (He would have been in high school in the late 90's, and the first season in which the state had 8-Man competition was 2000.) That school no longer exists, or, at least has been incorporated into a merger situation.

    Additional weight at LB would be great but not necessary, esp. on the outside. Speed and agility matter far more. Heck, possibly the greatest WLB in NFL history, Derrick Brooks played in the NFL between 230-235. I also remember in the mid and late 90s Nebraska started playing these LBs that were very small, some even sub-200 lbs like Terrell Farley. That was even in a time when most teams still lined up with a FB. Granted, they had dominant DLs to keep OL off the LBs. If an OL gets to the second level chances are he's going to handle a LB whether he's 220 or 250. I agree, bigger is better at LB, but only if athleticism and speed are not sacrificed at all.

    That F-M team was insanely good. They set the title game scoring record in the first half of that drubbing. And Murray had one helluva team that year, too. In almost any of the other 12 years I've been going to the Dome for the finals, that Murray team would have won it all. F-M (their QB was also really good on both sides of the ball) was just that much better.

    Blum was part of that star-studded 2005 recruiting class. Played in the Army AA game and did very well; injuries just never let him even get a fair shake at Iowa. I'm not sure what his day job is, but he runs the Iowa Football University program in Des Moines and had some really good teams this fall/winter. One group made it to either the national semis or championship game down in San Antonio.

    I think it was 9-man? I'm not positive on that, but that's how I remember it.

    Nerness just transferred to a powerhouse North Carolina High School.

    Trey Scott has a nice article on it.
