Omaha Westside running back Dom Rezac is off the board as a Division I running back. The 6-1, 180-pound 2022 athlete announced his commitment to Air Force on Friday afternoon.
“It just felt like a really good fit and I built a really good relationship with all of their coaches,” Rezac said of his decision. “They are the No. 1 rushing team in the country and I get to play some big time football. Also the education piece was a big part of it.”
Rezac isn’t just a good athlete, he has a grade point average of 3.8 and has scored a 29 on the ACT.
Air Force was Rezac’s first Division I scholarship offer on March 10 but schools like South Carolina, Nebraska, San Diego State and North Dakota State showed interest. Some of the schools recruiting him saw him as a safety and Air Force recruited him as a running back.
Last season, Rezac was among the state’s leaders in rushing for the 2020 Class A state champion Warriors. In twelve games he had 1,310 yards on 168 carries and 18 touchdowns. In 2019 he primarily played safety.
“I was going to go wherever I felt most comfortable,” he said. “It – playing running back – wasn’t a deal breaker but it was my preferred position.”
An unofficial visit to Colorado Springs last weekend solidified the decision in his mind.
“Before going out there I thought that would be the spot that I wanted to go to,” he said. “Last weekend being out there checked all of the boxes but I didn’t want it to be an emotional decision so I talked it over with my family and called them (Air Force) last night to commit.”
