Summer, 1949. The kid from Grand Island pulls out of town on to Highway 34 and heads toward Lincoln, Nebraska where he plans to play football for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He's got a year to wait and learn, because in those days, freshmen couldn't play varsity football, but at the end of his career four years later, he had become a college football legend.

Every long-standing Husker Football fan remembers the iconic Bobby Reynolds, a young athlete who made a powerful statement during the short time he was healthy enough to play good football for Nebraska. Reynolds was a halfback for the Huskers from 1950-1952, during the days when there was such a designation in the backfield of most college football teams.
