“I had a fantastic football career at Nebraska and thanks to my coaches and support staff, I have learned the value of hard work, teamwork and life skills. These skills will help me tremendously as I prepare for my career in the NFL. As a thank you to everyone in Nebraska who has assisted me on my collegiate journey, I want to donate $2 million to the Athletic Department.
