WATCH: Student wins $25K at Nebraska spring game, gets mobbed by players
Spring games are a chance to get some work done, but it is also a chance for teams to have some fun before taking a break for a couple of months.
During Saturday’s spring game at Nebraska, 86,000 fans showed up to see new coach Scott Frost’s debut at his alma mater. They were also treated to a student winning $25,000.
As you can see in the video below, the student cleanly fields a simulated punt, earning himself a hefty payday. But the best part of the video is that the fan is mobbed by players after winning the money:

Not a bad day’s work for that student, who now has a memory to last a lifetime, as well as a thicker wallet.
Things are fun once again in Lincoln, and the Cornhuskers should be a lot of fun to watch this fall.
