McKinney on Nebraska
“I chose Nebraska because of its amazing soccer program, and I feel it is a perfect fit for my academic and career goals. I'm interested in UNL's incredible engineering program, and I believe Nebraska has a lot to offer. I chose UNL because I also liked the approach the soccer program takes to improve technical skills and further development.”
