Todd Honas is embracing role as special teamer

Article Image Alt Text

Looking back, part of what brought Nebraska’s football program out of relative obscurity to national dominance in the 1960s and beyond was the walk-on program founded by legendary Husker coaches Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne.
Former Aurora all-state receiver Todd Honas hopes that history is about ready to repeat itself. The junior walk-on wanted to talk more about his role on special teams and also in helping teach younger players the ins and outs of head coach Scott Frost’s offense, instead of his team-leading three catches Saturday afternoon as part of the Red team in the annual spring game played before nearly 86,000 die-hard fans.
Pretty impressive.
