As previously reported on KNIA/KRLS Sports, Pella Christian graduate Kyle Nikkel got his first collegiate start at quarterback last weekend, with the true freshman claiming a thrilling comeback victory. In a recent interview with KNIA/KRLS Sports, Nikkel says the experience was surreal, as it took a while for he and his teammates to fully recognize that they had come back and won the football game.
Nikkel threw a 50-yard pass to the end zone as time expired that was caught for a score, eventually giving the Mustangs a win over then-No. 9-rated Midland. He and his teammates at Morningside College had a bye week this past Saturday, but return to NAIA play this coming Saturday with their Homecoming football game.
