KEARNEY — It’s a pretty sweet deal.
Kearney Catholic’s Thomas Connely will live out the dream of high school athletes across the state and walk on to the football team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. If that wasn’t good enough, Connely will also receive a Regent’s Scholarship to cover his tuition at Nebraska.
