Nick Pinchek was part of a dynamic duo at Parkland HS, teaming with Nittany Lion teammate Austin Scott to lead Parkland to the 2002 Class AAAA state championship. The talented and hard-working Pinchek has been productive when he's had an opportunity to carry the ball the past two years and is looking to continue his improvement and earn more playing time during his senior season.

2005 Junior Season
Pincheck saw action against Cincinnati and Central Michigan, gaining 15 yards on four carries against the Chippewas. He provided depth at tailback and was a strong contributor on the foreign team.
2004 Sophomore Season
Pinchek was a valuable member of the foreign team, but his efforts did not result in any playing time.
