Dec. 15, 2017 — SkyHawk linebacker and running back Jake Archer officially committed to play football at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In the past few months, Archer has received offers to play college football across the country, but he finally came to a decision to play for his home state’s team.

Archer broke the SkyHawk record for most tackled in a season this year. “Coach [Frost] really has an emphasis on speed and I believe that that is one of his strong suits. I think that he will fit right into the Nebraska system and become a regular player as he progresses,” said head football coach Matt Turman, “Jake is a great player who makes strong hits and is a handful for any quarterback or receiver.”

This offseason, Nebraska fired their head football coach, Mike Riley, and hired former University of Central Florida coach and Nebraska quarterback, Scott Frost. Frost’s style of coaching and run-first offense brought the UCF Knights into the national spotlight. This draws many players to want to play for him because of his personality and his recent success on the field.

Archer will be playing football at Nebraska alongside some former SkyHawks, including Christian Banker and Trent Hixson, both of the Class of 2017.
