Huskers Continue Working Toward Holiday Bowl

By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska football team practiced for just over two hours Wednesday afternoon inside the Hawks Championship Center as they continued preparations for the Dec. 30 Holiday Bowl against Washington.

Recently-named first-team Associated Press All-American Alex Henery spoke about his recent award and aspirations for his time after Nebraska, along with his legacy as a Husker.

"I feel like I'm a guy the team can rely on," Henery said. "I like pressure situations. I want to come through and help out the team any way that I can."

The All-American is currently the Huskers all-time leading scorer with 396 career points and is the most accurate place-kicker in NCAA history.

"I never really dreamed of this situation," Henery said. "Looking back, I never really could have dreamed it. Coming here and playing for four years was something I never thought I'd be doing."

Henery also addressed potential NFL possibilities.

"Oh yeah, I want to play," he said. "I hope to play. I really haven't paid too much attention to it. I've stayed away from it and focused on this year. After the bowl game, I'll take a closer look at it. It would be a fun thing to do and I'm looking forward to it if things fall into place."

Henery and the Huskers will meet Washington in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl on Dec. 30. The game can be seen on ESPN at 9 p.m. CST.
