From “Last Chance” to best chance: Nicholls’ big Ronald Ollie runs to victory


It’s all fun and games and then the big man rumbles in for a TD.

Big Ronald Ollie, a 6-2, 310 pound junior, scooped up a blocked field goal in the first quarter of Nicholls’ 33-30 double OT victory over Houston Baptist and rumbled 84 yards for a touchdown Saturday.

In his day job, Ollie finished the game with eight tackles, including 2.5 for loss. Fans may remember Ollie from Netflix’s “Last Chance U.” Based on this play, he certainly will have more chances!

Will we get to see Ollie go for it again? Find out on Saturday, when Nicholls hosts Sam Houston State at 3:30 p.m. ET on ASN.
