Andy recently arrived in Lincoln along with Coach Mike Riley and others, coming from Oregon State. Andy is really excited to be in Lincoln and a part of our historic program. He explained his role with the team and broke down their focus into three main areas: 1. The team they have in place today. 2. Enriching the lives of kids that are here now. 3. Preparing the for the group coming in.
Andy explained that a major priority is kids in a 500 mile radius. This has a lot to do with being close to home and their intentional relationships with players’ families. Andy was blown away by the Spring Game attendance and is ready to get to real games this fall.
