GORDON, Neb. (KNEP) - Gordon-Rushville’s Jace Nelson has been a multi-sport athlete for the Mustangs his entire career. Nelson played football, golf, and basketball over his four seasons in Gordon.

In football, Nelson was an all conference performer helping the Mustangs earn multiple trips to the state playoffs. While in golf, he contended with some of the areas best every week including earning trips to state two out of his three years playing.

Basketball is where Jace shinned the brightest helping guide the Mustangs to multiple Western Trails Conference Tournament titles and leaving the Mustangs with over 1-thousand career points and several rebounding records.

This past season Nelson would anchor a Gordon-Rushville team that advanced all the way to the Class C2 State Tournament in Lincoln for the first time in school history.

Nelson will take his talents to Concordia University and play basketball.
