Stryker report: Family rituals mark end of spring game

Categories: 2019 Football

It was a day for family April 13 at the annual Red-White spring game in Lincoln. Coach Scott Frost had an unexpected Husker family reunion with a former teammate, defensive back Michael Booker.

Meanwhile, young Husker fans lined up under the North Stadium hoping for a handshake or a high five as they honored their heroes on the way to the locker room.

As usual, fan favorite Adrian Martinez handed out goodwill after a postgame interview.

After getting a preview of the 2019 Huskers, red-clad partisans were in no hurry to leave Stadium Drive.

They told stories, reminded themselves of glory from past decades and looked ahead to good days on the horizon.

They indulged in one more postgame ritual … or maybe two …. said their goodbyes, and looked forward to the day when football season starts for real against South Alabama, Aug. 31.
