Nathan Rourke

QuarterbackQB
Stars in starting opportunity
QBBC
November 20, 2021
Rourke completed 23 of 34 passes for 359 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions and added 34 yards and three more scores on seven rushes in the Lions' 43-10 win over the Elks on Friday night.
ANALYSIS
Rourke's pair of picks were about the only blemishes on his body of work, as the 23-year-old turned in a spectacular fantasy performance. The University of Ohio product's efficiency on the ground was particularly noteworthy, with Rourke finding the end zone from one, five and two yards out as a rusher. The successful audition could well set the stage for an opportunity at the starting job for Rourke in the 2022 season depending on what the Lions choose to do with respect to bringing Mike Reilly (elbow) back into the fold.
