Nebraska State Soccer Hall of Fame



Nebraska State Soccer is excited to introduce to all members the newest program in the organization: The Nebraska State Soccer Hall of Fame!

NSS looks at this as an overdue opportunity to recognize those who have truly made a lasting impact on soccer in Nebraska. “We have, as an organization, been around for almost 50 years. In that time we have seen some great individuals who truly represent what we stand for.  It’s about time we start to recognize and thank those who really ‘do it right’ and who have helped to build Nebraska soccer into what it is today, and set us up to continue to do so for years to come,” said Crystal Collins, Director of Marketing and Events at Nebraska State Soccer. 

“While we have some time, and are just in the beginning stages of getting this planned, we wanted to let our members know that this is happening,” says Collins, “We are just really excited about it and we want our members to be excited as well.”

The Nebraska State Soccer Hall of Fame will recognize coaches, referees, player and administrators for a variety of achievements including Merit, Outstanding achievement and the highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement award. The Hall of Fame committee, made up of members of the NSS Board of Directors, will take nominations for, and ultimately choose, the first round of Hall of Fame inductees.

My Old Boots

I'm older now, and I stare at my boots, hanging on a nail in the garage,

held together with athletic tape,  caked with mud from a match long ago.

I rocket back to the day, I grin at the thought of that crossing pass, the slide tackle that started a scuffle, and the shot off the post.  

A worthy opponent and heavy rain made for a struggle. Sharing pints with our foe afterwards, the winner buys

Who would have thought the years would fly by, so fast.

I'm jarred back to reality by my dog, and I go to put out the trash.
