Proctor and utica college football standout nick woodman is set to play in the national arena league championship game this coming weekend.
Woodman is in his second year playing professional arena football - and its his first with the championship bound jacksonville sharks of the n-a-l.
His jacksonville sharks beat the columbus lions 67-43 in the semifinals last week for their 14th straight win in order to advance to the title game.
Woodman had one and a half tackles in the game.
Earlier this afternoon - i was able to catch up with the league's defensive rookie of the year via phone where i got his take on playing in the biggest game of the season.
Nick woodman: just a lot of excitement, ou mght not realyhen mydemeanor if we're talkng in person, but i'm vey ecited on t inside.
I had a coach a while back who told me to stay as even keel as possible, no matter what the situation.
It's been pretty hard to contain the excitement i should say.
Being in my second year, i didn't think i was going to get to this point this fast.
I thought i was going to have to go through a journey and deal with some losing seasons, and this that and the third, but i think the luck part has now come into effect for me as well.
Being on this team at this moment, this year, i think the moon and the sun have been aligning for me at this moment.
So i'm pretty excited to get this opportunity and to be able to play when there's only one other team playing.
Woodman and the sharks take on the carolina cobras in jacksonville on saturday at seven p-m
