Husker Football Letterman's Association 

Log in

Welcome

The Husker Football Letterman's Association (HFLA) is made up of former football players of the University of Nebraska - Lincoln (UNL). As former student-athletes of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) we are appreciative of the educational enrichment brought to our lives and are proud to be a part of the history, tradition, and pride known as Big Red football.  Our mission is to support, promote, educate and perpetuate past, current and future players about the history and tradition of Nebraska football.  HFLA supports Husker football lettermen, the University of Nebraska, the Athletic Department and the staff. HFLA is committed to a positive relationship that is mutually beneficial to the former players and the athletic department.  

It is our desire to bridge the gap between football alumni and current team members and serve as a source of inspiration for future generations of Cornhusker Football players that wear the Scarlet and Cream, by being  "the Team behind the Team".

The Husker Football Letterman's Association 2021 planned activities:

1. Sponsoring Team reunions - One key area for the association is to be the catalyst for annual football player reunions each year. In 2021 we have designated the weekend of the Northwestern home game on October 2, 2021 as the designated weekend for player reunions. Plans are being finalized for a big reception for all football lettermen and guests in Omaha, Friday night before the game. On Friday at noon the athletic department will be co-hosting with HFLA football class reunions for players during a brunch in the stadium club lounge overlooking the field for the players who graduated in 1961, 1971, 1981, 1991, 2001, 2011.   

2. Offering exclusive HFLA apparel - All former Husker Football players that become members of HFLA will be provided with access to purchase  exclusive apparel only available to former players. The apparel is on the top tab of the HFLA web site. 

3. Football Lettermen's Club in new building - HFLA will be working with the Athletic department to identify an exclusive area for former football players and their guests in the new Husker Athletic building soon to be built.

4. Pre-game tailgate reception - NFLA is working with the Athletic Department to hold pre-game tailgate receptions prior to all home football games. A new space has been designated on the southwest corner of the Colosseum for a pre-game tent along with refreshments.  

5. Football Players Directory - Our new HFLA website now includes a secure directory that includes all past letterwinners contact information to unite our former players. This directory is available to all HFLA members on the top tab of the website and is an easy way to find old and new friends.
