LINCOLN, Neb. — The player who defined an era of UNK football is preparing for a pro career.

TJ Davis was among the four Lopers who worked out for NFL scouts at Nebraska’s Pro Day on Wednesday.

“This is something you dream about as a little kid," Davis said. "You can’t really put it into a feeling until you get out there. A lot of nerves, but at the end of the day, it’s what we train for. I’m just excited to get it going.”

As UNK quarterback, Davis racked up more than 10,000 total yards, won two conference offensive player of the year awards and twice was a finalist for the Harlon Hill Award, which is given to Division Two’s player of the year.

Now he’s learning to be the one on the receiving end of passes.

“I’m trying to figure out where I could actually get a shot and actually put my talents to use," Davis said. "Obviously, I played quarterback, but I decided to make the switch to receiver on a two-month span, so it’s been straight receiver work. At the end of the day, I trusted my trainers back when I was back in Colorado to get me right and they did.”

None of the Huskers or Lopers have been invited to the NFL Combine. The other UNK players who worked out were defensive lineman Tell Spies of Mullen, punter Hunter Kraus of Sargent and defensive back Armani Webster.
