You’ve got to love the internet… and defensive tackle Louis Nix.
The rising junior, a key cog to the Irish defensive line, has taken to his YouTube channel to continue building his social media presence. Along with a popular Twitter handle — @IrishChocolate9 –Nix has now started “Chocolate News,” his YouTube updates of life in South Bend, as Nix and his teammates begin summer school and voluntary workouts.
Along with partner-in-crime, linebacker Kendall Moore, Nix’s pilot episode included a trip to Sam’s Club, where Nix, Moore, and freshman Sheldon Day, do their best to stock up on healthy food as they begin their training for the 2012 season.
But Nix outdid himself with episode two, scooping the local and national media getting the first public comments from head coach Brian Kelly after his back surgery. While Nix didn’t press him for updates on the Carlo Calabrese or Tommy Rees legal situations, Kelly looked in good spirits and fine health after back surgery, and even cracks a few nice jokes at the end.
