Palmerton Area’s LB Tre Nelson issues verbal declaration to Monmouth University
Nelson is a 6-foot-1, 220-pound linebacker that had 117 tackles last year, Palmerton’s single season record. It happened in only 9 games. He had 7 tackles for a loss, 2 QB sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 1 blocked FG.
“The first thing I say about him is, he is explosive. He’s very strong and a tremendous tackler. He plays sideline-to-sideline. He is a student of the game. He uses his hands very well at shedding blockers and getting to the ball . He is the complete package. He’s good at communicating and giving direction.”
