We've talked so much about Ryker Fyfe who has "walked on" at Nebraska and who is completing with Tommy Armstrong and Johnny Staton the fourth for playing time.

Another area walk–on is doing the same.

His name is Jack Gangwish, a former Wood River Eagle, who still hopes to fly as a Husker...

JACK IS A DEFENISVE TAKCLE WHOS BEEN ON THE SCOUT TEAM HIS FIRST TWO YEARS BUT HASN'T PLAYED IN A GAME.

HE HOPES THAT WILL CHANGE WITH THE OPENER AGAINST FLORIDA ATLANTIC IN EIGHT DAY.

HIS FATHER PAUL WAS ALSO A WALK ON AT NEBRASKA AND WAS ON THE TEAM DURING THAT IMFAMOUS MIAMI GAME IN THE ORAGNE BOWL AFTER THE '83 SEASON.

JACK SAYS BEING A WALK ON HAS MADE HIM APPRECIATE THINGS.

WELL OBVIOUSLY BEING A SCHOLARSHIP WOULD BE PRETTY COOL BUT MY FATHER WAS A WALK ON I THINK IT'S A COOL THING I MEAN IN A WAY A SCHOLARSHIP IT'S A RIDE. THAT'S WHAT IT IS AND BEING A WALK ON YOU'VE GOT TO WORK FOR EVERYTHING, NOTHING IS GIVEN TO YOU AT ALL AND I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT WAS REALLY COOL.

JACK WAS BORN THE YEAR FORMER HUSKER QUARTERBACK AND CURRENT OREGON OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR SCOTT FROST WAS A SENIOR AT WOOD RIVER....

HE WAS TOO YOUNG TO HAVE ANY RECOLETION OF SCOTT'S PLAYING DAYS BUT CERTIANLY KNOWS WHO HE IS.

I DON'T REMEMBER SCOTT FROST BEING IN HIGH SCHOOL OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT BUT EVERYBODY KNOWS SCOTT FROST THE ONLY ONE THAT ANYONE'S HEARD ABOUT FROM WOOD RIVER, NEBRASKA IS SCOTT FROST SO YEAH I MEAN EVERYONE KNOWS HE'S A GREAT ATHLETE AND IT'S TOUGH TO LIVE UP TO THAT SORT OF THING.

DEFENSIVE COORDINAOTR JOHN PAPUCHIS APPRECIATES WHAT JACK HAS DONE IN PRACTICE, BELIEVES HE'LL GET SOME PLAYING TIME AND IS ANXIOUS TO SEE WHAT HIS ALL DEFENDERS WILL DO IN A GAME.

SO AS THE HUSKERS GET GOING THIS SEASON, KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE FIELD AND LOOK FOR #95 JACK GANGWISH WHO SAYS THE BEST THING ABOUT HIMSELF IS HIS MOTOR.
