Athlete of the Month: Scott Nichols

Ty Soutas, Sports Editor

Scott Nichols is tough to bring down. This dude is a mammoth. The running back for the football team weighing-in at a respectable 175 lbs and 5 foot 10, can bench a whopping 315 lbs and squat 390 lbs. It is no wonder why people call him Superman for a nickname. This season, he has compiled over 1200 yards rushing along with 14 touchdowns. He averages 110.2 yards per game on 162 carries. He is close to having over 2000 career rushing yards, and has a chance of eclipsing that mark if Bingham goes deep into the playoff rounds.

One of his best games this season was on the road against Jordan. There, he had 201 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns on 23 carries. Scott has had over 200 yards rushing three times this season against Copper Hills, Jordan, and Brighton. College scouts have been paying a lot more attention to Scott but for now he is undecided on where he will attend college.
