I just posted this on Nick's facebook wall.
This morning, he found out from someone else who had been at the combine that players had gotten their calls and had a meeting on Sunday, at least the ones the coaches wanted to enter into the off-season program. No call for Nick. No quarterbacks at all, in fact.
He was trying so hard to stay positive. He was going to keep working and go to the next combine, and the next, and the next until they gave him a shot. But you could hear it in his voice.
Tonight, the phone rang again.
It was Nick. And he'd just gotten off the phone with the coach. And tomorrow he meets with them to get going in their off-season program.
There had been some confusion about the fact that he was not at UNC this semester but actually ON campus and able to take part.
Talk about your highs and lows in the same day.
He is over the moon with excitement for this opportunity. And we are over the moon with him.
Don't stop believing :)
