A White Oak senior football player with extensive experience on both sides of the ball picked up his first offer Wednesday evening.

Hayden Nichols announced via Twitter that Tyler Junior College offered him.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound tight end/defensive end was a key cog for the Roughnecks in 2013, when they went 13-2 and reached the Class 2A Division I state semifinals. That was White Oak’s first state semifinal run since 1970.

 

TJC wants Nichols at tight end. As a receiver/tight end hybrid in the Roughnecks’ spread offense, he caught 26 passes for 411 yards and five touchdowns as one of quarterback Dylan Gale’s top three pass-catchers.

Nichols is also a basketball standout for the Roughnecks after playing big minutes for their back-to-back Class 2A state championship teams the last two years.

TJC is a D-I JUCO program that competes in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference. The Apaches had a strong 2013 campaign, finishing 9-2 with a 47-21 victory vs. Garden City (Kan.) Community College in the Football Capital Of Kansas Bowl.
