Just a quirky question, but does anyone know why Nik changed his jersey number? Last year he was #1, and last night he was wearing #15. Seems odd to me that a player would change their number - - they become so recognizable by their numbers.

Odd, yes, but Ronny did it. He went from 35 (I think??) to 1 when the number became available after Winston Brooks graduated. Maybe 15 wasn't available until this year and holds some sort of significance to Nik? :confused:

Usually it is because someone else was wearing the #. There was no #15 on the Pilots last year.

His Dad wore #24.
