Julius Wilson signs with Omaha

Do good things happen to good people?

Those who support Julius Wilson sure believe it.

Shortly after getting suspended from the Arena Football League for going into the stands to help his father, Wilson now finds himself in a better situation.

The Southeast High grad recently signed a contract with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League and is currently practicing with the first team.

He says he is earning a lot more money than what he received when he was with the Orlando Predators of the AFL and is getting to play the outdoor version of the game, which he truly loves.

Adding a little more excitement to his role, the 6-4, 315 pound offensive lineman will get block for former Tampa Bay quarterback and long time NFLer Jeff Garcia.

Wilson will also be trying to clear some running room for former Ohio State star Maurice Clarett, who signed with the Nighthawks on Monday.

To add more intrigue, the Nighthawks head coach is Jeff Jagodzinski, who was fired by the Tampa Bay Bucs last year as their offensive coordinator. Wilson played with Orlando last year in the UFL.
