Byron High School quarterback Jack Nelson, who graduated in June, finished his high school football career with a win.

Nelson helped quarterback the south all-stars to a 24-14 victory in the 40th annual Minnesota high school all-star football game held June 29 at St. Cloud State University.

"He's a natural leader," Byron head coach John Austinson said. "And it doesn't surprise me that when he came into the game they were down 7-0 and he led them back into the lead and eventually they got the win."

Nelson finished the day completing four of 14 passes for 35 yards and one interception. He rushed three times for 15 yards.

The all-star game showcased outstanding senior players from the 2012 high school football season. Players and coaches representing 82 schools and 35 conferences participated in this year's game. They were selected by members of the Minnesota Football Coaches Association.

Nelson finished his career at Byron combining for 5,000 yards, 3,800 in the air and 1,200 on the ground. He also scored 50 touchdowns, 35 passing and 15 rushing.

He will attend and play football for Division II Winona State this fall.
