BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) As only a sophomore last season, Bellevue West's Zavier Betts made his mark on Class A football. The Thunderbird wideout finished 2017 with over 1,000 yards receiving hauling in 15 touchdowns. 

"It proved to me that I was better than I thought I was and I can play better than I really was playing," Betts said. 

"On the field this guy is a special talent, top 100 in the country," said Bellevue West head coach Michael Huffman. "He runs like a deer which is a great match-up advantage for us when we play other teams."

His all-state sophomore season resulted in an offer from Nebraska last October. 

"It was awesome, it was unbelievable" Betts said. "It would be pretty awesome to go up there and play for them cause it's a great program."

Although the Big Red's offer came from former head coach Mike Riley, Betts still likes what he sees in Lincoln under the new head Husker Scott Frost. 

"It really fits in with what I want to do when I get to college," said Betts. "Play like a champion you always have to play like a champion no matter who you're playing or if things aren't going your way, you have to play like a champion no matter what."
