Nico Law of Ringgold is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the state. A year ago, he became one of the few players in WPIAL history to rush and pass for 1,000 yards in the regular season. He finished with 1,210 yards rushing and completed 93 of 180 passes for 1,494 yards. He also will play defense this year for a Ringgold team with high hopes. Law's brother, Quad, was Ringgold's quarterback for two years before Nico became the starter. Quad is now a receiver at Gannon.
Some Division I colleges have expressed interest in Law, but he didn't have a scholarship offer from a I-A school until Ohio offered recently. James Madison (I-AA) also has offered.
OUR QUESTIONS, HIS ANSWERS
You had 1,000 yards passing and running a year ago. What should we expect this year? Ahhh, I don't want to say 'expect the same thing,' but it's possible for me to do it again. I worked so hard in the offseason, I expect to do it again -- or maybe even more.
Do you feel like you are better? I feel 10 times better than last year. Just with throwing the ball, my speed, my arm strength and even the mental part of the game.
Your first game is against Thomas Jefferson. Is it good or bad to open with a perennial power? Some people think it's bad, but I think it's good for us, just so we can showcase what we're about the first game.
Are you disappointed the way recruiting has gone and that you don't have offers from big schools? I'm not disappointed. Hopefully after this season things will change and more offers will come. But right now, I'm not disappointed.
Is Nico your real first name? No, it's short for Nicolas.
I take it you don't like Nicolas? It's not that bad. Everyone has just been calling me Nico since I was little.
Before games, you usually do what? Listen to music and pray.
Do you call it "bean bag toss" or "cornhole"? I definitely call it cornhole.
So, you have played it? Yes, I'm the best around. I will never lose at cornhole.
