Husker News and Notes

Press is big (6-foot-2, 200 pounds) like his brother. He doesn’t have Zac’s rocket arm, but he moves more effectively in and out of the pocket.

Nebraska came in at the last minute to recruit Zac and Press might draw similar interest after Butler’s season. Right now, he’s being most aggressively pursued by Marshall, said Butler coach Troy Morrell.

Gibbs, just retired from his second stint as coach of the Washington Redskins, was discussing his legendary Counter Trey, the foundation of the power running game that helped the Redskins win three Super Bowls from 1982 to ‘91.

“We stole it,” said Gibbs. “We saw some film on Nebraska, and Tom Osborne was doing some really innovative things with his line up front, and we were watching it and thought, God, that’s good stuff.”
