Nate Wara, the winningest quarterback in UW-Oshkosh history, signed with the Green Bay Blizzard indoor football team on Thursday (Dec. 19).
Wara started every game for the Titans from 2009-12, winning 28 contests including three playoff victories. During 2012, he earned NCAA Division III Offensive Player of the Year after totaling 3,311 yards and 30 touchdowns passing. Wara also ran for 740 yards and 10 scores.
Wara's career totals feature 11,202 yards and 80 touchdowns passing, along with 2,321 yards and 23 touchdowns rushing. Last April, he had a pro-day style workout for the Green Bay Packers.
"I've been given a great opportunity," Wara said. "I look forward to what I can do to help make this football team the best that it can be."
The Green Bay Blizzard will open their 14th season on Feb. 22. The first home contest is against Cedar Rapids on March 16 in the Resch Center.
"We are excited to have Nate as part of the team," said head coach Chad Baldwin. "He is a great athlete, but above all, he has great character. We think that he will be an asset not only to the team but the community as well."
The Blizzard have posted a winning record in eight of the last nine seasons.
