Last week. the school had its spring break, which meant a bit of time in the middle of the session for the players to unwind.The older Huskers on the team had different plans, though. As spring break came to a close, they texted the team, calling for a captain’s practice over the weekend.That meant players had to cut off their vacations early. After a 4-8 season, I can’t imagine too many objections though.The call came from defensive lineman Damian Jackson, a former Navy SEAL, and naturally, one of the more respected guys on the team.Scott Frost is thrilled that so many players came back to get the second half of Nebraska spring football off to a fast start.From the Lincoln Journal Star:As Darrion Daniels, another senior defensive lineman, recounts it, the mass text to the team from Jackson read something like this, “Hey y’all, we went 4-8 last year, we don’t have the luxury to enjoy a full spring break so make sure you guys cut it off halfway through the week and then get back early so we can get in some good work.”That led to a Sunday captains’ practice before official work began again Monday morning on the tail end of spring break.“I wasn’t just happy, I was thrilled with the way the guys came back,” Frost said, making note of the players-only practice. “They handled spring break, there are 100 things that could happen on spring break, we all know that. … We had an intense fast practice on Monday and it looked like they hadn’t left or missed a step.Frost praised the team’s maturity, and compared it to last year, when he said the team experienced a dip in performance at the middle of spring.Entering year two, after a disappointing season, the Huskers won’t be hurting for motivation this fall.[Lincoln Journal Star]last_img
