A former Husker football player who taught industrial arts in Lincoln has been sentenced to prison for molesting a teen-ager.
41-year-old Sean Applegate has been sentenced to between 15 and 20 years after pleading no contest to intentional child abuse and attempted sexual assault of a child.
A woman told authorities last year Applegate molested her between 2013 and 2014, when she was 15.
Applegate played for the University of Nebraska Huskers between 1996 and 1999. He had been teaching at Pound Middle School prior to his arrest.
