For the second time in five years, a Waupaca High School football stand-out has signed a National Letter of Intent to play college
football at North Dakota State University.
Senior Nate Jenson put his name on the dotted line Wednesday morning in front of family, friends and coaches at Waupaca High School. The four-year starter played three years at wide receiver before making the transition to quarterback for his senior season. Now, the 6’6, 225 pound Jenson says his calling at North Dakota State is likely to come at tight end.
Nate Jenson follows former Waupaca quarterback Brock Jensen (no relation) to Fargo, where Brock led the Bison to three straight FCS Championships. Nate Jenson said his decision wasn’t a tough one to make at all.
Jenson comes from a family of football success. His two older brothers played on Waupaca state championship teams in 2006 and 2008. And Nate helped lead the Comets to the state title game in 2012, where they lost to Catholic Memorial.
Jenson’s longtime coach John Koronkiewicz says it’s always special to see one of his players move on to the next level.
