Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah Gets Honor Of Speaking On Behalf Of B1G Players At Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon

Big Ten Media Days are July 28-29 in Chicago. Today, the conference released the list of players that will represent each team at the event. Each program will send three athletes and its head coach to meet with reporters during a series of interviews over a two-day period. 

The event concludes with the Big Ten's Kickoff Luncheon, during which one player from the conference makes a speech on behalf of the players. This year, that player will be Nebraska senior running back Ameer Abdullah.
