Stai and Sadusky Officially Sign with Northwestern College

Wed 2-7-2024

Jackson County Central seniors Seth Stai and Jack Sadusky signed national letters of intent with Northwestern College on Wednesday. 


Stai says he can’t wait to play football and wrestle for the Red Raiders. 

“It’s a big deal. I’ve always dreamed of this moment and always dreamed of playing college football since I was a kid. It’s going to be a lot of work but I know I’m going to really enjoy it. I’m going to come out of it a better person. The coaches are great people, my teammates are going to be great people, and the academics are amazing. I’m going to really miss playing with these guys. I love every single one of them. Everyone’s great and I’m going to miss it,” says Stai. 

Stai was named district Linebacker of the Year and ran for 1,111 yards and 16 touchdowns during JCC football’s run to the state semifinal. He is also currently ranked among the top wrestlers in the state of Minnesota at 172 pounds. 

Sadusky says several factors made Northwestern the right fit for soccer and football.

“I really wanted to go to college for both. Not only is it good for sports but it’s a very good Christian school. I’ll have my friend Seth there obviously so that’s going to help. He was convincing me to come with him and then it was just the right choice. Everything was just put together. I fit well into that football team so quick and the guys really enjoyed me. So many lessons and friends that I grew up with have encouraged me to become the soccer player that I am. Everyone who makes me the person I am today like teachers and coaches. I appreciate all of them,” says Sadusky.   

Sadusky was the district special teams player of the year as the Huskies starting kicker this fall. He also earned an honorable mention on the Big South All-Conference team as a midfielder for Fairmont soccer during the fall. 

Both student-athletes also mentioned the business school among the main reasons they chose Northwestern College.
