Darlington took father's words to heart before spring push : Latest Husker News
"Originally, I was not getting many reps when I started out," said Darlington, bursting with energy. "It’s one of those things where you can kind of pout and say, ‘Oh, that sucks,’ or you can step your game up. When you get two plays, those better be the best two plays of the entire team. Once I realized that I was starting to get the hang of things, I just thought, ‘Dude, just play ball, man.’"
