On Monday, Nebraska freshman offensive lineman Ty Robinson learned he was awarded the George Finley Sullivan Scholarship, named in honor of the longtime Nebraska Athletic Trainer.

The Sullivan Scholarship is given annually to a member of the Nebraska football program, who has a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above and demonstrated exceptional character. A preference for the scholarship is given to players who have a desire to pursue a career in a health-related field after graduating from the University of Nebraska.

Video of the presentation was posted on the Nebraska Football Twitter feed.

Sullivan served as Nebraska’s Head Athletic Trainer from 1977 until 1995. He was an Assistant Athletic Trainer and Head Physical Therapist for the Huskers from 1953-1977

George Sullivan (Sully) passed away in December, 2018.
