Nick Blay has always had the passion for football.
As a child, he played with friends on an empty lot on near the Thomas D. Murphy Building.
Rain, snow, blistering heat, it didn’t matter. Blay and his friends played.
Blay’s love of football grew throughout middle school, high school and on to Simpson College.
Shortly after his freshman season at Simpson, playing wide receiver, Blay re-aggravated a lingering foot injury. After surgery, Blay’s football and track career at Simpson ended.
