  Former Ohio University quarterback Nathan Rourke has been named one of the five finalists for the third annual Jon Cornish Trophy, given annually to the most outstanding Canadian player in NCAA Football. Rourke, who completed his senior season as a three-year starter at quarterback for the Bobcats in 2019, is familiar with the award. Rourke was picked as inaugural winner of the honor in 2017-18, and repeated as the Cornish Trophy winner in '18-'19. Rourke, a physical activity and sport coaching major, was named to the 2019 All-Mid-American Conference First Team after being named to the All-MAC Second Team the previous two seasons. He was named MAC East Division Offensive Player of the Week three times during his senior season, bringing his career total to nine.

Rourke set career highs in completions (200; sixth-most in program history), attempts (328; eighth-most in program history), completion percentage (61.0 percent; sixth-best in program history), passing yards (2,820; fourth-most in program history) and passing yards per game (216.9; fifth-most in program history) while throwing for 20 touchdown passes (tied for fourth-most in program history) against a career-low five interceptions in 2019.

  Nathan Rourke accounted for 241 yards of offense and ran for a touchdown to help Ohio beat Nevada 30-21 on Friday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Ohio (7-6) rebounded from a 1-3 start for its fifth straight winning season under coach Frank Solich. The 75-year-old former Nebraska coach received a two-year contract extension this week. Nevada (7-6), which dismissed defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel and two other defensive position coaches at the end of the regular season, didn’t find much of an answer for Ohio’s high-powered offense until the fourth quarter.

The Wolfpack also were missing three key defensive starters, suspended for their participation in a fight in a loss to rival UNLV in the regular-season finale. Ohio raced to a 20-9 lead and scored the first 10 points of the third quarter before holding off Nevada's late rally. The Bobcats lost leading rusher O’Shaan Allison late in the first quarter with an undisclosed injury. De’Montre Tuggle took over, rushing for 97 yards and a touchdown to spark a ground attack that finished with 285 yards on 50 carries spread among five players. Rourke, who is projected to be a high first-round draft pick in the Canadian Football League, tied Kareem Wilson's school record for career rushing touchdowns of 49. Wilson played from 1995-98. - AP College Football

  Rourke's physical gifts include quick feet, a natural, instinctive running style, and a knack for making a play when things break down. But it's Rourke's mental strength that has earned the rave reviews from teammates and coaches. He'll stare down a blitz to deliver a deep ball. He's the guy who will stay hydrated even on a press junket. He's the guy who reads obsessively about leadership in order to connect with different teammates. He's the guy running extra after practice. And Rourke has embraced it all while doing his best to reflect the attention coming his way, and yet always doing it his own way.

"Nathan is a guy that doesn't have to feed into the most popular brand. He's going to do what he feels is right and best," Hagan said. "He's himself, always. "He's not a 'brand' guy. He's kind of like Kawhi Leonard," Hagan said, smiling, as he referred to the NBA star known for being a bit stoic. "He's like the Kawhi Leonard of football. He knows what he's about, and he doesn't care if you do or not. "He doesn't have to brag or boast or be flashy, but when it's time to make a play - he makes a play." - Athens Messenger
