Starring: Johnny Rodgers, Tom Osborne, Aaron Taylor, Jerry Tagge, Jason Peter, Turner Gill
As head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 1973 to 1997, Coach Tom Osborne guided, inspired, and elevated his teams to 255 wins, 13 conference championships, and three national titles to cap perfect seasons. A moving tribute to a college football icon, this original film follows Osborne's early coaching seasons under Bob Devaney through his ascension to head coach and beyond, honoring and celebrating the attributes of a champion - on and off the field. Quiet and gracious, Dr. Osborne formulated the most prolific college football program in history while insisting that student-athletes strive equally for academic and athletic excellence. Hear family, colleagues, and players, even Coach Osborne himself, tell stories that span the decades. Listen to Johnny Rodgers, Turner Gill, Jason Peter, Jerry Tagge, Aaron Taylor, and others explain why Osborne became such a legend - as a coach, leader, and humanitarian.
