Big recruiting weekend that Nebraska fans can be a part of

Hi friends.

I hope that you will be joining me this weekend to at least show up to the Friday Night Lights or the first annual Adidas OL/DL Camp on Saturday late morning/early afternoon.

If you can only pick one, please choose the OL/DL camp. I wrote this article a month and a half ago regarding the OL/DL Camp. I want to leave a excerpt here:

Quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers get the love everywhere. Do you know where linemen get love? Nebraska. This could probably not work anywhere except at Nebraska. It could be our niche.

Nebraska fans would show up in droves to an event like this and boy would that make the next Ndamukong Suh or Dominic Raiola feel pretty special.

So I am hoping to see a bunch of fans there because I’m taking my three kids and my wife to the OL/DL Camp in Saturday. I mean it is Father’s Day Weekend right?


Need Information On The Camps?

Here is the statement from Nebraska Athletic Department regarding information for the camps this coming weekend:

Both Friday Night Lights events will take place from approximately 6-8 p.m., with gates to the stadium open at 5 p.m. Fans may enter the Stadium through Gates 3 (SW corner) and 11 (NW corner).

The OL/DL camp will run from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, June 15 with gates opening at 10:30 a.m.

All seating for the camps will be in the lower bowl of West Stadium, and the West Stadium concourse will not be available.

Restrooms will be available at field level in the northwest and southwest corners, as well as South Stadium. Fans in need of ADA restrooms should access restrooms in the northeast corner.

Fans attending any of the three camps may park in the West Stadium parking garage, and the Champions Club parking lot. Those lots will be cashiered.

Concession stands will not be open, but fans may bring their own water and snacks into the event. Coolers will not be allowed.

Fans are encouraged to travel light to expedite entry into Memorial Stadium.


Husker Sports and Others (The Offseason Is Dumb - You Know Except for the Health of Players and All that Jazz)

Huskers Team Camp an Invaluable Experience for Creighton Prep | Hail Varsity
Earlier this month, Nebraska hosted its first ever full-padded team camp. The goal of the camp was to provide players and teams an opportunity to improve their game by working on the fundamentals and skills of football. It was also a great opportunity for competition to take place in a controlled environment.

One school that was in attendance for the camp was Omaha’s Creighton Prep, led by Coach Tim Johnk.

Nebraska's Tour of Asia About Much More Than Just Volleyball | Hail Varsity
Seventeen days, two countries, over 1,100 miles and seven matches await the Nebraska volleyball team as the Huskers head to Asia for their 2019 foreign tour this weekend.

Coach John Cook has a lot planned for his team during the trip which will pit the Huskers against a handful of talented, experienced club teams on the court. That experience will be valuable for a young squad featuring six true freshmen, but the trip is about much more than volleyball.

Power Ranking the Big Ten Quarterbacks in 2019 | Hail Varsity
Quarterback may be the single most-written about position in all of sports. If you have a quality player running your team’s offense, wins will come. If you’re inconsistent at that spot, or incredibly young, or have multiple rotating pieces, you’re in a little bit of trouble.

Soft course at Pebble Beach leads to low scores
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Rickie Fowler had an ideal start Thursday in the U.S. Open, and so did the USGA.

Pebble Beach was as gentle as could be in the opening round, and Fowler was among those who took advantage with six birdies for a 5-under 66, giving him a share of the early lead with Xander Schauffele and Louis Oosthuizen.

Ohtani hits for the cycle against the Rays
Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani hit for the cycle Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Ohtani, who is the first Japanese-born player to hit for the cycle, did it with a single in the seventh inning off Tampa Bay reliever Hunter Wood. That followed a three-run home run in the first, a double in the third and a triple in the fifth.

“STICK TO SPORTS!” Nah.
