Mostowich on Nebraska
“I chose Nebraska because the coaching staff made me feel welcome the moment I stepped on campus. The importance of player development was evident early in the process. It was evident because the coaches took genuine interest in my aspirations and goals. It's also a long term staff with the track record of national level players and team success to prove it. Choosing Nebraska over other schools came down to having the whole package. Nebraska has top level coaching to help me reach my high aspirations in soccer and to play in a competitive Big Ten Conference. It is a wonderful community of Lincoln with amazing enthusiasm and support of all Husker teams. They have a state of art facility for athletic training and academic learning.”
