Liberty’s Nulick headed to the Marines

For The Madera Tribune

Liberty football player Max Nulick right, signs his papers to attend the U.S. Merchant Marines Academy where he will also play football. Also signing their military papers is Seth Ruell to the U.S. Army.


For the third year in a row, Liberty High School will send a graduate to a U.S. Military Academy, except for the first time the graduate was also recruited to play a sport.

Max Nulick follows in the footsteps of Skylar Hartley and Quaid Copher, who both went to the Naval Academy, to head to a military academy. He will attend the U.S. Merchant Marines Academy and play football.

“I got a tweet from their California recruiter,” Nulick said. “We started talking. I went to a visit last December. When I went, I enjoyed it. College is paid for. It’s based out of Kings Point, New York. It will be cool to play in the snow.”
