Anthony Branch

Anthony Branch, a former UNL Football player, moved from Idaho to Lincoln because he believed in Coach Tom Osborne and the University of Nebraska. He poured his heart and soul into the Huskers team until he earned a wingback spot on the roster. Since then, Branch has stayed close with his Huskers teammates and coaches.

After a long and satisfactory football career playing for the University of Nebraska, he is now a dedicated and caring father and grandfather; however, he was hit with Polycystic Kidney Disease, a hereditary condition that threatened to take his health down a dark road. 

This disease causes cysts to develop around the kidneys, resulting in function loss over the years. This did not stop Anthony from continuing his joyful life. With help from the Nebraska Graets Foundations, he received the assistance he needed to cover his medical expenses. 

Larry Florence

Larry was a UNL Basketball standout performer in the late ’90s. In his senior season, Florence was the only Husker to start all 30 games and led Nebraska in scoring at 13.0 points per game. All his hard work throughout the years regarded him the title of Husker Power Male Athlete of the Year in 1999.

After a long and successful career in Basketball, Larry faced one of his life’s toughest opponents: cancer. It was a brutal fight, but he wasn’t alone. Thankfully, at the NGF, we could help him with travel expenses for the treatment he needed away from home. With this support, Larry could focus on his health and keep fighting his battle.

Nebraska Greats Foundation

At the Nebraska Greats Foundation, we recognize the great labor students and graduates put in daily to make the Huskers the top team they are today. We know the vast lengths athletes will go to be the best; we know how much time is invested and how their bodies do more than what one can think.

That’s why we help make their lives easier and their medical expenses more accessible. The NGF is all about supporting athlete students and veterans from UNL and other schools in their journey toward recovery. Our mission is simple: we want to be there for people when they need us the most. So, join us in making a difference!
