Due to the high demand last year, the line to grab Husker Coach Scott Frost’s autographed will be limited this year at Husker Fan Day.
In the first release about the decision, it was made to limit Coach Frost’s line to kids only for 2019 Fan Day. The athletic department staff members in charge of organizing Fan Day made the decision to limit access to Coach Frost’s line to children who were members of the Nebraska JV Team only.
After further consideration, the Fan Day organizers recognize this was a mistake. Limiting access to JV Team members could prevent some children from having the opportunity to be a part of Coach Frost’s line.
It is important to Coach Frost that all children have an equal opportunity to receive his autograph on Fan Day. To that end, the Athletic Department has determined that JV Team membership will now be free.
Parents are encouraged to sign their children (eighth grade or younger) up for the JV Team in order to have a chance to be selected for Coach Frost’s autograph line. Registration for the JV Team will begin on July 8 at 10 a.m. Approximately 250 JV team members will be randomly selected in advance for a spot in Coach Frost’s line.
Coach Frost also plans to autograph 8×10 photos that will be distributed to the first 1,000 kids at Fan Day that are not a part of his autograph line.
Nebraska Football Fan Day is set for Thursday, Aug. 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
