Spencer Senior Logan Zschernitz signed his letter of intent to play football next season for Division 1 Northern Illinois in DeKalb Illinois.
Zschernitz attended camps at a handful of other schools, including North and South Dakota, Northwestern, and Madison, but he enjoyed the coaching style at Illinois the most.
“Just the family feeling there and all the guys I got to meet really set in stone where I wanted to go – at Northern Illinois,” he said.
The Huskies play in the Mid America Conference and won the West Division title and Conference Championship Game in 2018.
Zschernitz is coming off a memorable fall season for the Spencer/Columbus football team. The offensive and defensive lineman was named Cloverbelt Conference Offensive Player of the Year as he helped the Rockets to a second-place finish in the conference, an 11-2 overall record, and a trip to the WIAA Division 5 state semifinals.
