Huskers Land Quarterback

Huskers Land Quarterback

The Nebraska Cornhuskers is the home of a top-flight quarterback from Florida.  Apopka High School’s Zack Darlington said no to Ohio State and others and said yes to Nebraska on Friday.  Darlington led his team to a state championship last fall in Florida’s largest football division.  Rivals.com lists Darlington as a three-star quarterback, standing 6-1 and weighing 205 pounds.  The soon-to-be senior plans to graduate early and be with the Huskers in time for spring practice next year.
