Nebraska Football Walk-On Event Pays Dividends

Push For In-State Talent Reaps Rewards

By Wednesday night, Fearless Leader Scott Frost had singlehandedly funded a stock split for 5 Hour Energy by the time he flew to Lincoln to host a large Walk-On Event. Developing the walk-on program was one of Coach Frost’s focus areas, and the event was the first step towards doing so. The reported goal is to bring the roster numbers north of 150 by August to improve practice squad quality and quantity and consequently first/second team quality. Ultimately the coaches want a 170 man squad. Title IX affects this, so there may not be room for that many. This is the desire of the staff, however. Over forty athletes from all over the state attended in order to meet the new staff and hear what they had to say.

Previous commits got to meet their new head coach:
