The 5-foot-8-inch, 130-pound senior distance talent broke the tape at the LHSAA Class 5A State XC Championships this past season with a time of 15:17.20 over the three-mile course—the fastest all-class clocking of the day—leading the Bearcats to fourth place as a team. A 2020 LHSAA All-State selection, Nimmers went 6-0 at the three-mile distance last fall and also clocked the state’s fastest 2020 boys races at two distances with personal-best performances over three miles (15:12.91) and 5K (15:48.00). In addition, he won individual district and regional titles, anchoring Ruston’s team titles in both those races. This past winter, he added a Division 1 state title in the 800-meter run on the indoor track.
Nimmers has maintained a 3.33 weighted GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to run on scholarship at Louisiana State University this fall.
Nimmers has volunteered on behalf of the Christopher Youth Center for runaway and homeless youth throughout the past decade, providing assistance with yard work, painting and a variety of community service projects, including organizational fundraisers.
