Stories About Husker Student-Athletes - Told in Their Own Words

Making The Impossible Possible

As game time approached and we watched the fans fill the stands we couldn’t help but realize something truly special was happening. 92,003 people. I still pinch myself.

This is For You, Clark

Yet, the most cherished memory is that baseball was the last sport we played together. In that final game, I was the catcher as he pitched. It's a memory etched in my heart forever.

Going the Extra Mile

Nothing excites me more than leading a group of young athletes to believe in themselves and accomplish their goals through the course of the season and the forthcoming years.

I was beyond grateful to continue my head coaching career in Lincoln. 

Living The Good Life

My time in college has taught me many things, but above all else, it's presented me with opportunities and experiences to grow both on and off the court.

Clearing New Heights

As a freshman, my world revolved around that crossbar. It took regression and failure for me to see that I'm not defined by the marks I set out to achieve.

Playing With Purpose

At 46, my family is my entire motivation as I continue playing professionally to regain my PGA card and compete against the best golfers in the world.

More Than a Job

Being an athletic trainer is my calling, and it's been the pleasure of my life to work with so many different wrestlers through the years that have entrusted me with their care.

My Journey Abroad

Each and every night, when my dad would get home from work, we would all head down to our neighborhood pool.


I had not only found my niche within track and field but, more importantly, had fallen completely in love with the sport. 

Chasing The Next

What happened instead was that I experienced a moment that would, undoubtedly, change the course of my life forever: I discovered a passion for the sport of swimming. 

Raise the Bar

There's an old saying that iron sharpens iron, and that's exactly how I feel each day in practice with my coaches and teammates. 

The Magnificent Eight

The Magnificent Eight had a profound impact on my life. 

What we were able to accomplish as eight black teammates together was something that I've taken with me for the entirety of my career and journey.
