Former E-Hawk Honored At BVU
A former member of the Emmetsburg High School E-Hawk football player was recently honored for his accomplishments as a member of the Buena Vista University Football team.
Jerod Wolff, the son of Carol and Jerold Wolff of Ruthven recently completed his senior year on the Buena Vista Beavers football team. Wolff earned high praise from BVU Head Coach Jay Anderson. “We expected Jerod to anchor the offensive line this past season as two-year starter at guard; and he didn’t let us down as he was a great leader for us and he worked extremely hard in the weight room and at practice every day.”
According to Anderson, Wolff was everything he wanted in a player. “Offensive linemen are the guys on the team that are the most selfless, extremely well coached and well disciplined; when you’re coaching, you look for that kind of guy.”
In his high school career, Wolff started every game in his tenure at Emmetsburg and was an integral part of the E-Hawks’ success. But, Wolff admits it wasn’t until his college play that he finally hit his stride. Hitting the weight room, Wolff bulked up from 220 to 280 pounds to fill the offensive guard’s position in the BVU offensive line.
In his senior campaign at Buena Vista, Wolff was a team Captain, and was also named the recipient of the 2010 Offensive Player of the Year award and the 2010 Captains’ Award. He concluded his college career as a three-year letter winner at Buena Vista.
At BVU, Wolff is majoring in Exercise Science and Human Performance, with a goal of a career as an athletic or personal trainer or conditioning trainer.
