12/17 Speaker: Dennis LeBlanc – Associate Director for Athletics and Academia at UNL

Dennis told us that the number one thing that student athletes talk about as positive, is the people in Lincoln being so nice and accepting of them.  He talked about UNL remaining in the lead nationally with 314 Academic All Americans.  Dennis talked about high school kids committing to colleges earlier.  Most of them are making commitments in their Junior and early into their Senior years.  Dennis provided a great presentation, showing the level of focus on student athletes education at UNL.
