About

Perhaps nowhere in the world is the love of sport and its practitioners greater than in Nebraska. Our legendary loyalty to our beloved collegiate teams proves that the word “fan” is indeed a shortened form of “fanatic.” This loyalty extends far beyond the fields of play, and does not fade with time. For once you have represented the state of Nebraska, once you have demonstrated your sacrifice and heart, once you have thrilled us with feats few of us dared dream possible – then you are forever a member of our family.

Like all families, trouble strikes its individual members from time to time. And when those times occur, we want to be there to lend a hand. Because that’s what family does. From this desire, the Nebraska Greats Foundation was born.
