Husker Heroes 2011 was fantastic!!!!

Belos: Sean & the Dance Squad (aka: New Facebook Profile Picture)
One of the first athletes we met was a swimmer named....REBEKAH!! Spelled 'correctly' as Rebekah and Rebekah discussed. They had a mutual admiration thing going. Later, we read Rebekah Land's profile and discovered she also has a brother named Nathan. Wow!
Kids with the dance squad...possibly our Christmas Card Photo.
Another possible Christmas Card Contender. With the cheerleaders this time.
Nathan with Maurio Bondi, Place Kicker. He has the most stunning blue eyes!
Here's Tear'a Laudermill (Point Guard--considered one of the fastest in the nation) against Rebekah in a dribbling drill. Tear'a played a game yesterday afternoon then came out at night for the Husker Heroes Event. Rebekah thinks the game wore her out because, "I beat her 'cause I'm faster than her."
You can read more about Tear'a and the entire event at the Husker Sports Website.
Nathan & Andrew decided to go up against each other. Andrew was leading until Sean jumped out at him and caused him to lose the ball.

Rebekah crawled under the side-stepper instead of using it the 'appropriate' way.

With more football players.
Overall, we once again had an amazing time at this event. The athletes are so wonderful and they truly celebrate every achievement the kids make during the evening. It was a blast and we hope we can go again next year.
