Week 9 Pigskin Idol Recap: Nicole Swanson, Steele Canyon
The Week 9 PPR Pigskin Idol, Nicole Swanson, wrote the following recap about her experience working on the Prep Pigskin Report:
Hi my name is Nicole Swanson and I was the Week 9 Pigskin Idol. Being the idol was a once in a lifetime experience that I am incredibly happy I was able to have. The people at KUSI were all very kind and supportive as I prepped for my segment.
I did a number of things that all led up to the final performance. My game however, was called due to lightning and during this dramatic turn of events, I learned how to go with the flow, more so than I usually do. With Nic Pollino’s help, I wrote my script and practiced it until I had it perfected. Nothing could prepare me for the actual experience of being on stage. Paul Rudy makes a comfortable atmosphere and once I began my segment, all the nerves disappeared.
I wish I could do it all over again because it was such a unique opportunity. I loved every second of the night and it seemed to be over too fast. If I could say one thing, it would be to just enjoy the night, as it is only going to happen once and it is an amazing 2 minutes on air.
