Well, well, well what do we have here? Why, it’s day number 50 on the ol’ OBNUG Countdown. How convenient! Hilariously enough because we have a day 100 and day Zero, this isn’t the halfway point. But that’s ok. We are still hitting a pretty awesome milestone.—DL Jack Beresford

How’d he get to The Blue™?
Divine providence? Kidding of course. From high school Mr. Beresford went to Washington State out of high school along with older brother, Cade. The younger Beresford did not play last year.
I dunno. Kind of keeping it short and sweet right now.

Not much here on the collegiate level anyway.
I’m not sure how to differentiate defensive lineman vs tackle vs end when it comes to the defensive scheme. Looking at who is making up the defensive linemen (and Jack being an OLB in high school) I am guessing it’s a flexible position with mostly edge work? Probably standing up? If that’s the case, then the position is going to be really competitive for the Broncos and super-important. The defensive line is going to have to come in clutch for the team this year and Jack could be a decent-sized part of that.
As it looks for Mr. Beresford, hopefully he’s able to capitalize and make it on the field for more than special teams.
Is he on Twitter?

Good ol’ JB likes to bake. Specifically cakes. He’s been tempted to enter into one of those cooking competitions for Food Network but, unfortunately, with the burgeoning football commitment he’s been unable to audition. But I do feel like it’s coming soon.
