Fresh off his big game in the Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers, Jordy Nelson returned to Kansas State a hero this week.
The former Wildcats wide receiver, who started his career at K-State as a walk-on and lived the dream of every small-town kid on his way up, was honored during Monday’s basketball game at Bramlage Coliseum.
Before tip-off, he humored a mob of reporters and talked about what his wild ride has been like.
What have the last few weeks been like for you?
It’s been crazy. Obviously, it was a dream come true to be able to play in, and win, the Super Bowl. It hasn’t set in yet. I think once we get that ring, I think it will be sometime this summer, I look forward to getting it. Like I said, it’s been a dream come true.
