On Saturday, April 21st , the Osmond TeamMates chapter made their way south to Lincoln to watch the Nebraska Cornhuskers annual Red/White football game.
This year the TeamMates program kicked off the day with a breakfast at the Salt Dog Baseball stadium. This provides an opportunity for all of the TeamMates chapters across the state to get together and celebrate a successful year with their mentors and mentees. The program concludes at the baseball stadium with a special tribute to the graduating seniors.
The main event was the Husker Spring football game with the new head Coach Scott Frost making his debut. There were over 80,000 people were in attendance. Before the game, the TeamMates mentees stood up within the stadium to take a drug free pledge. It’s such a neat tradition to see these mentees taking the drug free pledge as a group, noted many of the mentors.
It was a great day for everyone who attended even though the weather was damp and chilly. We thank all of our mentors who were able to make the event another memorable one for our local mentees!
8 man football? 11 man football? To Carlin Krienert it makes no difference.
He graduated five years ago from Osmond Community High School after playing four years of high school football as a running back and linebacker.
Although he graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in an agriculture-related field, he did spend two years attending classes and playing for Nebraska Wesleyan University.
Krienert mentioned that although there is a huge difference playing football in college compared to in high school, he just simply liked playing.
Carlin received a scholarship in college and really liked playing football in college. Meeting new friends was one reason why he liked it. It is easier to make contacts by sharing the same interests.
“Football is something I enjoyed playing...I enjoyed doing football in college because you become friends with a lot of kids that have the same passion to play the same sport as I did,“ Carlin said.
"I also received a scholarship, and I knew it would be a good way to meet a lot of kids in college that had similar interests,“ Carlin said.
Had it not been for multiple shoulder surgeries, he would have played to the end of his eligibility.
“I played college football for two years, I would have played longer but my playing career was cut short due to injury.“
Although he played football four years in high school and had some experience there are differences to college football that Carlin had to learn.
He played in the same position in college but said it is faster and the training is harder than high school football is.
“College football is much more intense than high school football due to the fact it’s faster paced, and you have to pay attention to detail. You also have to be very dedicated.“
Overall, Carlin enjoyed playing football in college and would have continued if he would have been able to. If you have the chance to play football in college don’t hold of it, do it.
Currently Carlin is at home and helps his dad with farming. He doesn't play football but still does sports on his own.
Football stamped his life because it was one of his passions. He still likes going to watch football games in Lincoln whenever there is the possibility.
