Former Bellevue West Star Ducker Enters Portal


2020 Bellevue West grad Jay Ducker has entered the transfer portal. The 2019 Nebraska Gatorade Player of the Year broke the state’s 11-man record for touchdowns in a career (110) including 94 rushing touchdowns.

Ducker, the MAC Freshman of the Year, MAC Championship Offensive Player of the Game rushed for 1,184 yards during his freshman season at Northern Illinois.

“For me trust is a big thing. Me and my coaches didn’t have trust,” Ducker said of his decision to leave NIU. “I feel like they weren’t being honest with me.”

In the Huskies first four games of the season he had 24 carries for 85 yards. It was the Huskies 34-26 win over Bowling Green in week five where he established himself as the lead back in the MAC Champions attack. In the next eight games Ducker ran for 1,099 yards on 194 carries and finished the season with three touchdowns.

Ducker is open to any and all possibilities at what he hopes is his next stop in his football career.

“I want to keep playing football for as long as possible,” he said. “I want to fit into an offense that fits me. I just want an opportunity.”
