DeKALB — Cameron Stingily was nervous.
Northern Illinois’ 30-27 win at Iowa was the junior tailback’s first start of his career, and really the first time he had taken the field on offense since his senior year at Romeoville High School in 2009.
His road to earning the Huskies’ starting job came after he suffered a torn Achilles his freshman year, as well as a position switch.
“The first play I think I was shaky. I hadn’t played in football — offense or defense — since high school, something like that,” he said. “First play I was just nervous going out there. Once I realized they were just like me, all that went away.”
