Great running back and seems like a great dude. Thank you for all you did for Nebraska as player and later representing the team in the NFL. Best of luck!
Rex is the type of RB I’d love to see emerge on our team this season! He gave a 100% a 100% of the time, never made excuses and helped to inspire his teammates. Not going to comparing him to our other GREAT RB’s because that was a very different era with Dr Tom and total dominance running the ball. He was however one of my all time favorite Huskers and a fantastic person.

The athletic department needs to get him to a game this fall and honor him. Top 5 All-time Husker greats at RB in my OPINION.
Who knows... maybe he'll find a staff position here somewhere along the line.He's got the whole package. :)
