Creighton Nelson

By Austin Heinen/AJ Sports Reporter

This week’s athlete of the week is Creighton Nelson from the Exira-EHK football team. Creighton played a huge hand in the Spartan’s 46-44 win over Sidney as Nelson had seven catches adding up to 171 yards and two touchdowns. Nelson was a force on the ground as well as he ran for 102 yards on 13 carries and had three touchdowns. Offense wasn’t all that Creighton did, he also finished with a great defensive stat line with three solo tackles and 12 assisted tackles. Creighton even had a 70 yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Too many more performances like that, and the stat keepers are going to need more paper. Great game Creighton!
