Recently, 8-year-old Jack became the newest member of the Nebraska Cornhusker Football team. Jack’s wish was to be a real Nebraska Cornhusker Football Player.
Jack’s wish began on November 15th at his school where he signed his
official Letter of Intent to play for the University of
Jack’s wish continued on Thursday and Friday
at UNL with facility tours, meet-n-greet with coaches and players, lunch
at the training table, participating in team drills and practicing his touchdown dances with his new teammates.
On the big day, Saturday, November 19th, Jack joined his fellow
teammates for the Husker Unity Walk, and pregame activities as they
prepared for the Maryland game. He then led his team out as part of the
Tunnel Walk in front of 90,000+ screaming fans. After Jack's grand
entrance he enjoyed the game from a special Skybox where all his
favorite tail-gating snacks were waiting for him.
Thank you to Premier Companies, Inc for sponsoring Jack's wish, and Elwood Photography for capturing his wish experience. To all the other supporters who helped make Jack's wish extra special, thank you!
