Johnny Rodgers to sign autographs at State Fair
The Nebraska State Fair starts Friday with News 5 Live at 5:00 and 6:00 from this Friday through the following Friday.
In addition to the News 5 Anchor team, none other than former Husker National Champion and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny "The Jet" Rodgers will be on hand to sign autographs at the RFD-TV booth Friday through Sunday.
Chances are, he'll talk about this play from yesteryear.
That is the famous punt return for a touchdown as John helped lead Bob Devaney's Huskers to a 35-31 over the Oklahoma Sooners of Chuck Fairbanks in a Thanksgiving Day battle of the #1 and #2 teams in the nation.
That contest is known as the Game of the Century from which Nebraska went onto win the National Championship.
John will have his Heisman with him at the State Fair Friday through Sunday.
He'll appear at noon and 5 O'clock each of the first three days of the Fair and also have his new award the Johnny "The Jet" Rodgers kick return award which debuted in college football last season.
We'll definitely get his views on this season's Husker squad which begins its season September 1st against Southern Miss.
