Dream comes true for former Giltner Hornet

Article Image Alt Text

A couple weeks ago I wrote a column about former Giltner native Adam Carriker getting chosen to the Cornhusker Football Hall of Fame.
Well, over the weekend another former Hornet made some news when it was announced that senior Husker defensive tackle Logan Rath was awarded one of three scholarships for this upcoming school year.
Well done!
Rath, along with linebacker Brad Simpson and fullback Graham Nabity, got the good news this past Friday morning. It was certainly a fitting cap to his college football journey, beginning at South Dakota State where he received a scholarship out of high school, then transferring to Lincoln and redshirting in 2012. He, along with Drew Ott, helped the Hornets to a 10-0 start in 2011 before Giltner lost to Howells in the D-2 state quarterfinal.
