A Husker Family Christmas

That's what the University of Nebraska football team treated more than 60 kids from the Lincoln, Nebraska YMCA Community Learning Center to last week.

The kids had the opportunity to watch the last part of a practice, then take the field themselves and play. The coaches and players also shared a Christmas meal with the youngsters, and each child received a gift personally chosen and paid for by one of the players. After the meal, everyone got together and sang Christmas carols. The football coaches and other athletic department staff got together to make a cash contribution to the YMCA's scholarship program.

Merry Christmas to the Huskers and the kids their selfless donation of time and money touched this holiday season.
