Call for Volunteers

Hello Everyone,

My name is Richard Wilson.  I was born and raised in Morrill, NE.  I attended Chadron State College.  I am a diehard Nebraska fan.  The 2014 / 2015 Football Season is upon us.  I wanted to reach out to each of you, the Coloradans for Nebraska members, and let you know that I will be the new point of contact for Watch Site Volunteers.  I will be working with the volunteers to setup a schedule of who will be at what Watch Partner Location throughout the season.  

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that we have volunteers at as many sites as possible.  Without volunteers, Coloradans for Nebraska will not be able to maintain our goals to keep sponsoring young adults from Colorado in the quest to further their education by attending the University of Nebraska.  With the help of you, our members, for each of the last 4 years we have helped to provide over $40,000 each year in scholarships.  Can we reach that goal or more for the 2015 / 2016 school year?

Will you please consider volunteering for a watch partner location?  We will be working to staff with volunteers specific locations first to ensure resources are used the best way possible.

Please email me at with your availability for games and locations. 

Thank you - Rich

Radio Partnership            
To allow Coloradans for Nebraska to focus on scholarship fundraising, we have been partnering with Mark Knudson for the last several years so Husker Football is on the radio.  To make this successful, businesses are always welcomed to contact Mark to discuss advertising opportunities and partnerships.  

Mark Knudson, Program Development  -

975 Lincoln Street, Ste 201, Denver, CO  80203

303-650-1795 (o),  303-472-3475 (c)


Mark is working with Mile High Sports Radio this year which will include stations FM 94.1 Denver, AM 1550 Denver and FM 96.9 in Boulder. For more reach, he is also working with a northern Colorado FM station, FM 102.9 KARS. It's a very strong signal that will cover from Thornton up to Laramie.  This should work out very nicely, DAY and NIGHT for the Denver, Boulder, and the Northern Colorado Areas.
