KAYLA WOLF, Journal Star

6-4 | 245 | Sr. | College: Nebraska.

Stats and stuff: Jurgens suffered an injury-filled season that ended with a broken ankle in the third quarter of the final regular-season game against Norris. When he was healthy, he did a little bit of everything for the Orangemen, rushing for 318 yards and eight TDs from Beatrice’s jumbo package, catching 17 passes for 277 yards as a tight end and registered 57 tackles points and intercepted a pass as a middle linebacker. The broken ankle, which required surgery, might’ve ended the high school career of the Journal Star’s 2017 Boys Athlete of the Year. Jurgens, a three-time Super-Stater who committed to NU before his sophomore year, is not expected to make it back for basketball and he’s expressed doubt about competing this spring in track, where he’s the defending all-class gold medal champion in the shot put and discus.
