Juan Martinez (right) and Matthew Drazic, both of Masonry Precast Specialty Services, scrape excess mortar from the face of bricks recently installed on the lower level of UNL’s West Memorial Stadium.
The bricks are part of a $12.3 million upgrade of the stadium. The brick was donated by Endicott Clay Products Co. of Endicott, to match the brick they have provided for other parts of the stadium. With the addition of brick to West Stadium, all sides of Memorial Stadium feature brick as a cohesive design element.
Memorial Stadium will host Nebraska Football Fan Day from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Aug. 1. The event is the best opportunity for fans to meet Husker football players and coaches before the start of preseason camp.
All Husker players participating in preseason camp will attend fan day. Autograph cards and other items will be available for fans at Memorial Stadium gates. Fans are reminded to limit autograph requests to one item per player or coach.
For more information, including parking and gate information and a fan day map, go to the Huskers website.
The 125th season of Husker football opens Aug. 30 against Florida Atlantic at Memorial Stadium.
