Wingspan: What is your favorite part about football?

Nickell: “We’ve been putting in a lot of hours this summer and dedicating a lot of time and effort towards this season.”

Wingspan: What is your goal this season?

Nickell: “Our goal at the end of the day is to just play better than we did last year.”
