That is coach Bo Pelini talking about naming his captains for the 2014 Husker football team...

It's five veteran guys, guys who've been there before and made plays...

Bo feels they will make plenty more plays starting Saturday when Nebraska opens the season hosting the Owls of Florida Atlantic...

.Bo also announced that Husker punter and former Grand Island Islander Sam Foltz after at first "Walking On" has been put on scholarship.

He averaged almost 42 yards a punt on 71 punts last season as the Huskers finished 9–4.

He and others defiantly earned their scholarships.

We made this decision awile ago but just want to announce it today, guys now on scholarship Sam Burich, Sam Foltz and Jim Finley. We'll announce other guys to be on scholarship when we have our eyes dotted and t's crossed.

It is always a mark of "making it" when a guy who tried out and made the football team paying his own way thru college earns that scholarship to have his way paid for him for the rest of the time he is in school. Hopefully that is the case for those guys.
