It's a quarterbacks job to not be surprised. Easton Stick was surprised Thursday.
The North Dakota State University senior was recognized on the American Football Coaches Association, Good Works Team.
It's a national honor that's given to student-athletes for their work in the community. Stick does a lot of work with kids.
"People care in this community and people are watching and so that was cool to see how the kids that look up to athletes and I was one of those kids, too. I used to nerd-out and be a huge fan of guys so being able to be in similar shoes now on the other end is special," said Stick.
NDSU Head Coach Chris Klieman said: "There's only 22 student-athletes that get the opportunity and that's a pretty prestigious group of guys. Eleven FBS and 11 in the other division's, so it shows you the impact that he's made. And, it was priceless because this is not what Easton would want to have. He does not like to have the limelight on him, you guys know that."
Stick has been invited to New Orleans for a presentation at halftime of the Sugar Bowl.
Klieman say Easton always pushes the credit to other people and it's time he got some of the credit for all of the good things he has done.
