Football: Connelly commits to Golden Gophers
In eighth grade, Nick Connelly started hitting the weights. At that point, he didn’t have dreams of becoming a Division I athlete; he just wanted to reach his potential.
"My dad was just like, 'You should go work out. You could be a really big dude,’” Connelly said. "He always told me that if God gives you something, use it to your full potential. He gave me size, so use it to go as far as I can.”
