In the world of football even the kickers deserve some recognition once and awhile, and former Husker Drew Brown is one of them closing out an impressive collegiate career, but still has yet to earn his spot in the NFL.

Despite a wild senior year as a team, Brown had a lot to be proud of in his time with the Big Red, knocking the rock through as far as 51 yards.

Overall he completed 59 field goals in his four years, the second most in school history.

Within those, Brown also tied the NCAA record for most field goals in the first half, making five against Southern Miss.

Now with all his success on paper and in the films, number 34's next challenge is just to sit and wait for the call of a lifetime.

"Just anxious, you know I've done everything I could do, I had a good pro–day, a good combine, Brown explained. "The mini–camps went well, but they just decided to go another direction, but you just got to be ready," Brown continued.

"I could get a call tomorrow, I could get a call the day before training camp, or I could get a call during pre–season. You just never know and that's the way being a specialist is, you just never know when you get a chance in the game," Brown said.

"But it's kind of the same deal, we'll see what happens."

Brown spent some time in the New York Giants mini–camp back in April before being released.

Off the field he's also been part of the Tom Osborn Citizenship Team, Second Team All–Big 10, and a spot on the Nebraska Scholar–Athlete Honor Roll.
