I was able to get a hold of Ronald Ollie and hear about his current situation, which is really disheartening when you add the adversity this young man has had to overcome in his young career. After speaking with Ronald about his time at EMCC and his current situation at Nichols State, I realized he has done nothing wrong, except DREAM BIG! Ollie was pushed into going to a smaller FCS school and did extremely well as soon as he touched the field. We all have our flaws, but this big man is a beloved player in the locker room and I officially offered him to join us as a Northland Pioneer. The problem thou is that Nichols State/Holmes College will not release his transcrips and say he owes $2100 dollars and will not let him know what the fees are even for.

As you will see below, Tony has been on a national camp tour this summer and was able to produce fantastic results. I really like the way Tony is able to utilize his change of speeds to create separation and the physicality he brings to the receiver position. Tony has two offers
