Nelson Signs Officially With The Hawkeyes

Posted by waukee | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 08-02-2015


WAUKEE, Ia. – Anthony Nelson wore an Iowa Hawkeyes sweatshirt and made it official Wednesday morning.

The Elite all-state defensive lineman signed a letter of intent to play football at Iowa. He was one of 20 Warrior seniors who were part of a ceremony in the Waukee Fieldhouse.

It will be months before Nelson puts on shoulder pads for the Hawkeyes. But the 6-foot-6, 210-pounder felt his energy surge to think of the future.

“It gets you more excited for what’s to come,” said Nelson, who had 21 solo tackles for loss last fall.

Anthony’s father, Jeff, was a defensive lineman for the Hawkeyes. Anthony grew up with lots of Iowa football inspiration on the walls of his family’s home.

“There are pictures of dad all around the house,” Nelson said.
