Coming out of Welsh High School Pearse Migl wasn't exactly the most sought-after recruit. At six feet tall, he's undersized at a position where size means everything. Migl was never sure if or where he'd fit in. Even at Louisiana.
"I've always been told (I'm) too short, not long enough, and all that. So I had to work a lot on my edge, what I'm good at, a chip on my shoulder that I could feed off of," he said.
Last Friday that hard work came to fruition as Migl hauled in his first career touchdown, the game winning score in Louisiana's 24-20 win over UAB. He called the play a "dream come true."
"Last year Hunter got one, Neal got one, Nick had a few. It felt like everyone had one except me. I was missing out on the party I felt like," he said. "Now I got that. It's a dream come true. We each life each other up so it's like we all scored that one."
Migl inherited that H-back role Nick Ralston was so clutch in during the 2019 season. He's played in all five games this year, but Friday's catch and score was his first touch. For his career, the sophomore has caught 7 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown.
