Incoming Medina High senior quarterback Jason Hellwig competed at the National Underclassmen’s Top Prospect Eilte Camp held this past Saturday at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

During the 7 on 7 competition, Hellwig helped his team go 3-0 in the round-robin portion. He threw a touchdown pass in each game including the game winner with just 15 seconds remaining in a 12-6 opening game win. His team then lost in the championship game 25-12.

Hellwig was ranked the No. 4 incoming senior quarterback at the camp by NUC’s national evaluator.

NUC’s Elite Camp,  their final camp of the year, was attended by players from all over the country, with the highest number of participants coming from Texas.

Hellwig, who has started at quarterback for Medina the last two years, already holds the Mustangs career record for touchdown passes with 29.
