We are the continuing the link to past and the current team. We seek to pay forward by sharing words of wisdom and reflection with the current players having walked in those same shoes some years earlier. We seek to build a camaraderie between all of us that have had the privilege and experience of wearing the Husker uniform. And because those experiences continues to serve as an important lens through which we view and relate to our families, friends, jobs and circumstances.
By joining the HFLA you are helping ensure that friendships remain intact, that history is not forgotten, and that current and future Huskers understand, appreciate, and nurture the legacies that you helped create.
