A great night for a great cause – The 2nd Annual Nebraska Greats Celebrity Sports Night presented by First State Bank is the “Reunion of the Scoring Explosion” with a storytelling session featuring Turner Gill, Mike Rozier and Irving Fryar moderated by Jim Rose.

Our inaugural Celebrity Sports Night drew over 700 attendees in support of former Nebraska college athletes who have emergency medical and financial needs and this year’s event will be just as unforgettable:

  • Sports legends from each of the 15 schools Nebraska Greats Foundation assists including Heisman Trophy Winners Johnny Rodgers, Mike Rozier and Eric Crouch.
  • NGF recipients will tell their stories
  • Presentation of the Andra Franklin Service Award (this award is named in honor of the late Husker great who is the inspiration for the Nebraska Greats Foundation)
  • Recognition and celebration for the achievements of each of the 15, 4-year Nebraska colleges and universities served by the Nebraska Greats Foundation
  • Each ticket includes an autographed, post-card sized collectible replica of the famous “Scoring Explosion” scoreboard poster.

The Nebraska Greats Foundation provides financial assistance to former Nebraska male and female collegiate athletes who, as a result of a medical challenge, have exhausted both their insurance and personal resources. We assist all 15 colleges and universities in Nebraska.

The Nebraska Greats Foundation is an official 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation chartered in Nebraska. Our Federal tax ID number is 45-5122321
