Husker Nation tour rolls through state with a stop in Kearney
The Nebraska football staff embarking on a 26–town tour of the Cornhusker state the last two days.
Kearney among the list of stops with Offensive Coordinator Troy Walters and quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco paying a visit to talk with fans about the upcoming season. Husker fans turning out at the First National Bank downtown location.
Walters and Verduzco were in town speaking about the progress the Huskers made over the duration of spring ball while also fielding questions from those who were at the Kearney stop.
The new offensive coordinator at Nebraska says his guys have progressed faster than they imagined.
"The guys really picked this offense up faster here than they did at (Central Florida)," Walters said. "Eager to learn, excited when they got here, they got in the meeting room, got into film study, and they picked up the offense.
"They finished ahead of where we were at UCF and now we've just got to continue to take that next step this summer."
Walters and Verduzco also making pit stops in Hastings, Geneva, and York.
No word if Larry Wilson and Richard Parker were there to accompany the Bernie Lomax look–a–like.
