|High schoolBoone Central/Newman Grove|
Boon Central/Newman Grove quarterback Wyatt Mazour was one of the Nebraska's s most dynamic high school playmakers for two seasons. Mazour led the Cardinals to a 13-0 record and Class C-1 state title in 2014 and earned All-Nebraska first-team honors as quarterback. He was also the honorary captain of the All-Class C-1 team.
The 5-foot-8½ 187-pounder passed for 1,863 yards and 25 touchdowns, while completing better than 56 percent of his passes. On the ground, Mazour rushed for 1,632 yards and 26 touchdowns, with eight 100-yard rushing games. He added nine tackles and two interceptions and had more than 600 return yards.
Mazour was also the C-1 all-state quarterback as a junior, leading his team to an 11-1 record and a trip to the state semifinals. Mazour threw for 1,608 yards and 11 touchdowns, while rushing for 1,228 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2013. He also added 19 tackles and three interceptions and had more than 500 return yards.
At Nebraska, Mazour will likely make the switch to running back or slot receiver.
And, truthfully, Mazour says he was “pretty much a running back at the quarterback spot” for Boone Central/Newman Grove.
So the chance to play at Nebraska is way more important to Mazour than where he plays.
“I had a couple pretty small schools that told me they wouldn’t mind having me at quarterback,” Mazour said. “But my whole goal is to be a Division I athlete. I did know that bigger schools would be looking to just get me in the open field and do what I do best.”
These are the players who built Nebraska football.
