A best-selling author and keynote speaker and a Nebraska softball captain who will become President of the Nebraska Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) this summer were Tuesday night’s special guests on the Talk to the Director of Athletics Radio Show, which was  broadcast across the state on network affiliates and around the country on Huskers.com.


Mattie Fowler (No. 17) led a Husker celebration in the 2013 College World Series.

Jon Gordon, author of such books as The Energy Bus, The No Complaining Rule and Training Camp, was featured on Segment 3 of Tuesday night’s show.  Mattie Fowler, the captain of two teams that incorporated Gordon’s positive energy philosophy and inspired Husker student-athletes across the board, was featured on Segment 4.
