Sometimes when trying to think of a topic for Friday Flakes there are things are dropped on your lap that are perfect. In this case it’s the great story about Lincoln East’s Malachi Coleman who is currently a 4-star wide receiver recruit.
Coleman is looking to team up with Nick Maestas of Muchachos to create an opportunity for Malachi to make some NIL money as a high school which he would give back to the children who are currently in foster care.
Here is the story from Nicole Griffith of 10/11 news out of Lincoln.

The total number of early arrivals continues to rise for Nebraska. And their backgrounds are more diverse than ever.
Bryan Applewhite is 'tickled to death' to be coaching new Husker Anthony Grant | Football | omaha.com
Until he took the running backs job, Nebraska’s newest assistant hadn’t been on the school’s campus in nearly three decades.
Bryan Applewhite, speaking Wednesday during “Sports Nightly” on the Huskers Radio Network, said he attended a football camp at Memorial Stadium in 1992, when Tom Osborne was coach, Frank Solich coached running backs and Applewhite, who grew up near Denver, couldn’t go to school without being able to talk about the Nebraska-Colorado rivalry game.
The upside-down life of the Tennessee Titans' All-Pro long-snapper
LONG-SNAPPING HAS been described as the most specialized, and most ignored, position in all of sports. And in the strange, upside-down world of the long-snapper, the better you are at your job, the more anonymous you become. Case in point: Although they are a critical component in punting, extra points and field goals in a league where field position and scoring is at an all-time premium (especially during the playoffs), long-snappers didn't have their own official spot on the All-Pro team until last year.

I don’t know Mike McDaniel, but I love Mike McDaniel. While everyone has been fawning over Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, wondering when he’ll return to head coaching, the hipster McDaniel has been chilling on the West Coast, leading the 49ers offense, and creating one of the most unique brands of offensive football left in the playoffs.

Nebraska "too good to turn down" for QB transfer Casey Thompson
When Casey Thompson was considering transferring from Texas, he had a list of schools that would be possible options. Nebraska was on that list.
After Husker starting quarterback Adrian Martinez entered the transfer portal, and would eventually commit to Kansas State, Thompson said he decided to take a risk and put his name in the portal.
The overall feel of Nebraska's 2022 recruiting has taken a big turn. We hit on that and more in today's Three & Out.
