FINAL SCORE

 

     I just discovered this magazine in December 2013 at a small flea market. Keith Jones, former NU running back, served as one of two managing editors for the publication, which was based out of Omaha. I have no information on when publication began, how long it ran, or when it concluded.

 

     This issue is chock full of great photos from the January 1, 1995 Orange Bowl victory over Miami, plus a rundown of area boys and girls high school basketball teams across Douglas and Sarpy Counties. Ironically, the "Opening Shot" has January 16, 1994 as its date, and references January 1, 1994 in the article, so that may give an indication of why it may not have lasted!
