14 native Nebraskans are on the Husker football roster, and 11 of those arrived to the Husker program as walk-ons. Among those are starting center Justin Jackson, kicker/punter Brett Maher and offensive guard Seung Hoon Choi. They are all a part of the 29 seniors who will be honored on Senior Day when the Huskers host Minnesota. Under Bill Callahan that walk-on program took a bit of a hit. Bo Pelini says when he got here, he talked with Coach Osborne about turning it around.
The size and the scope of the walk-on program here at Nebraska is unique and Pelini admits it took some time to learn how to utilize it, but he knows how important it is to the fabric of football in this state.
