WARRIORS ATHLETE OF WEEK: Patience rewards Brainerd running back

Email

Nick Welch bided his time and capitalized on his opportunity.

As a junior he carried the ball just 19 times and gained 91 yards for the Brainerd Warriors, playing behind 1,000-yard rusher Jordan Hayes and 800-yard rusher Matt Pohlkamp. Hayes and Pohlkamp combined to score 27 touchdowns.

When Hayes graduated, and Pohlkamp didn’t play football this fall, it gave Welch an opportunity to become Brainerd’s feature back.
