Tell us a little about your family. – I come from a great family of six siblings who I love and have a great time with every time we get together. We are all very good friends who enjoy similar things. We do a great deal of camping, boating, and traveling together during the summer months and plenty of Husker events together during football season.

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
