The Nebraska football program will once again give Husker fans an opportunity to get a glimpse inside the program, as it presents Football 202 during fall practice. Football 202 will take place on Saturday, Aug. 16, and provides fans with the chance to get a preview of the 2014 season just two weeks before the season opener.
The one-day session will include breakdowns from members of the Husker coaching staff, an opportunity to interact with current and former Huskers and tours of Nebraska’s world-class facilities. Participants at Football 202 will also get an inside look at the 2014 Huskers during a practice.
The morning sessions include breakdowns from Nebraska coaching staff members on “Winning Offense”, “Winning Defense” and “Winning Special Teams”. The morning will also feature a question and answer session with current Husker players.
Eric Crouch, the 2001 Heisman Trophy winner, will be the featured speaker during the lunch hour of Football 202. Lunch will be served in the East Stadium Club, part of the newest addition to Memorial Stadium that was completed before the 2013 season.
The afternoon portion of the program will begin with a recruiting seminar, including members of the Husker staff as well as Sean Callahan of HuskerOnline.com. That session will be followed by a locker room tour and the Huskers’ practice. The day will include with a tour of the Huskers’ football facilities prior to an evening social with members of the staff in the East Stadium.
The cost of $274 also includes coffee and rolls in the morning, lunch and food at the evening social, in addition to a Husker polo.
