Nicholas was a member of the UNK football team where he earned MIAA academic honors. He says participating on the Loper football team was extremely rewarding, although some days were very difficult. Through the football team, he was involved in a variety of community service activities such as yard clean ups and reading to local elementary students. He says the fact that companies travel thousands of miles to recruit UNK students was a huge reason why he decided to major in Industrial Distribution.
