It's probably something that is played over and over at every school around the country. A walk on gets his shot and a scholarship to play ball. But at Nebraska, perhaps more than most places, when you are a walk-on who has crossed that line and became a scholarship player, it's like you have joined a historic club. Well, Nebraska added Austin Cassidy to that club this week.

It might have been a foregone conclusion that Austin Cassidy would end up a Husker with his father there, but that shouldn't take away from Austin's credentials on the football field.
