Mayernik Household Divided? Youngest Signs with MSU Northern

Posted: Updated:

Nancy Mayernik's phone is filled with photos of her son Jared. The former Centerville star was the top punt returner in the nation for Carroll College last year. But that's not the only reason Nancy is proud of her son.

"He's doing great at football and he's doing great at school," said Nancy. "It's just developed him into a really neat guy"

Now she's going to have to make room in her phone for even more photos. Jared's younger brother, Jesse, signed his letter of intent to play at MSU-Northern. Nancy is hoping she won't have to choose between wearing the Saints colors or the Lights colors any time soon.

"That's going to be a big transition," said Nancy. "It's going to be hard giving up my Carroll purple. I'm so glad I have one more year to wear my Carroll purple."

She does not want to see her kids play against each other. She's hoping Jesse will redshirt his freshman year, which would be Jared's last season of eligibility. If Jesse redshirts, he'll get the chance to watch Jared on the field from the opposing sidelines.

"I'm very excited," said Jesse. "Even if it's just standing on the sideline on Northern's side watching him play because he's just so fun to watch. It's awesome."

Despite Jared's success, it's not easy to transition from Class C 8-man football to one of the premiere conferences in the NAIA. Jesse will have his Centerville teammate, Kole Chartier, join him at MSUN.

" I like it. I'm not jumping up there all by myself," said Chartier. "I have someone to help me through the adjustment and the changes that I have to go through."

With the name "Mayernik" attached, Jesse feels like he has an expectation to reach. But Jared wants his younger brother to become his own player.

"I know Jesse is someone who's not going to let someone tell him what he needs to be or where he needs to go or what he needs to do," Jared said of his younger brother. "He's going to do what he needs to do and he's going to put all of his effort into it."

Jared will be entering his final season as a Saint but Jesse's collegiate career is just beginning. It means more opportunities for Nancy to use her camera phone. Even if a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes a phone full of photos still isn't enough to describe the love a mom has for her kids.
