23-year-old NFL hopeful Nick Schrank of Centreville, Virginia appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for the program’s “Does This Thrill Bill?” segment on Wednesday night.
Bill is William Shatner. And Schrank successfully thrilled him with a standing jump onto a medicine ball positioned atop a 40-inch bridge.
Here’s a link to the trick.
Schrank played linebacker and defensive line at George Mason, which faced D-2 opponents but is characterized as club-level football.
He is 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, and runs in the 4.7s with a 33-inch vertical leap.
“I’m relentless,” Schrank told PFT when discussing his uphill climb toward the NFL. “I’ll stop at nothing. If I have to go on The Tonight Show and clap my hands like a seal, I’ll do it.”
So Schrank has won over Bill Shatner.
Next up, an NFL team.
