Anthony Nelson Commits to Iowa State

Posted by waukee | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 22-07-2014


Long time Acceleration Iowa athlete and Waukee Warrior has chosen Iowa State to continue his football career in College. Anthony has taken a path similar to his dad Jeff Nelson. Jeff was an outstanding basketball player in high school but never really applied himself to football until late in his high school career when he found he had some natural talent for the sport and ended up playing football at the University of Iowa. Anthony almost didn’t even go out for football his Sophomore year and was set on playing quarterback. He developed even more as an athlete last summer and found a fit at defensive lineman for the Waukee Warriors. His outstanding play gained some attention from recruiters and Iowa State jumped at the chance to sign him early. We look forward to following Anthony this year and when he takes it to the next level at ISU!!!

Cunningham Choses Upper Iowa

Posted by waukee | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 16-07-2014


Jade Cunningham of Panora, Iowa, has announced her intention to sign with the Upper Iowa University (UIU) women’s basketball program. Jade, an incoming senior at Panorama High School in Panora, notified UIU’s Coach Carol Russell of her decision on June 18th. Cunningham is excited to play for Coach Russell and to add to the tradition of women’s basketball at Upper Iowa, which is the only NCAA Division II program in the state.

Cunningham chose Upper Iowa University while receiving interest from the University of Denver, Luther College, and the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). One of the deciding factors for Jade was her strong confidence in Coach Russell and Upper Iowa University. Cunningham connected quickly with Russell. “It’s nice to have a coach that understands what it’s like to play at the highest level of women’s college basketball”, said Cunningham. Coach Russell was a four year letter winner and team captain at the University of Nebraska.

Cunningham is part of the ongoing success of Panorama High School’s girls basketball program. The Panthers have placed first in the West Central Activities Conference for the past five consecutive years. Panorama has finished the last two years ranked in the top ten for Iowa 2A teams. Jade is on the left in the picture above after earning her cheetah shirt running 17.0 mph for 6 seconds unassisted.

Jade and some of her teamates have been a part of the Acceleration Iowa program fro the past couple of years. We know how hard Jade has worked and we are excited to see all her efforts pay off!!!
