Former Huskers Grant Wistrom, Jason Peter Address Nebraska Football Team

August 10, 2018

Defensive coordinator Erik Chinander has wanted to get former Huskers Jason Peter and Grant Wistrom together to address the Nebraska football team. He said so earlier this week.

For Chinander, it wasn't a matter of if he'd get Peter and Wistrom to Memorial Staium. It was a matter of when. Peter, who Chinander has met and played golf with, promised to set it up.

Friday night, Peter and Wistrom officially made it happen.

According to Wistrom, associate athletic director (and former Husker) Matt Davison reached out to make it happen on Thursday. One day later, Wistrom was on a plane to Lincoln.

Chinander has said many times how important it is for his defensive staff to "bring the Blackshirts back" to Nebraska. And on Friday, he got some major help from two former Blackshirts in making that happen.
