    He was very deserving, IMO. I'd say this is the 2nd best punt return over the last 20+ years:

    N Riley I trust

    Im here to grow young men and win championships. Those arent exclusive of one another. Nebraska HC Mike Riley

    Agreed. That was on the same level as Johnny's return or even Tommie's Gator-shaking run in the Orange Bowl.

    I thought this award wasn't going to be awarded until after the 2012 season. This seems like a rushed pick and event announcement, no?

    In the original article it explains why they chose one so soon.
    If you continue to have your practices open to the public, dont be surprised if they show up. All of them.

    Greatness is made in empty stadiums, but its revealed in full stadiums.

    I hope the acceptance speech includes a shout-out to #41 in Volunteer orange, Adam's best blocker on that particular return.

    Electrifying return, but not a lot of great Special Teams play there.

    For the record: The award is coming home to Nebraska next season! AA is going to bring the trophy back where it started.
