High school career
During his four years as an athlete for the West Potomac varsity football team, Pierson-El helped the Wolverines capture a share of the 2011 Patriot District championship as a sophomore receiver, led the team to a playoff berth as a junior running back in 2012, and kept West Potomac competitive as a senior quarterback in 2013. He also played defensive back and returned kicks along the way. As a senior, he earned first-team VHSL all-state honors as an all-purpose defensive player.
Pierson-El was a versatile and electrifying performer for Nebraska throughout his Cornhusker career. A Virginia native, Pierson-El burst onto the scene in 2014 earning All-America honors as a punt returner as a true freshman. He continued to be a difference-maker on special teams throughout his career, while also producing an outstanding Nebraska career as a receiver.
He then signed with the Montreal Alouettes but was cut in August after only dressing for one game.
