Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne and his wife, Nancy, are being honored by Lutheran Family Services for the example they have set with their lives.
The group plans to honor Tom and Nancy Osborne at a dinner Tuesday evening. The Osbornes are being recognized for their
commitment to their faith and their humble service to young people
in Nebraska and beyond.
Tom and Nancy Osborne founded the Teammates mentoring program in 1991 while he was still Nebraska's head football coach to provide support for school-aged youth.
Osborne coached the Huskers for 25 years and won 255 games and
three national titles.
Osborne also represented western Nebraska in Congress for three
terms in between retiring as coach and returning as athletic director.
