Super Bowl champ visits Husker camp

Former New England Patriot running back J.R. Redmond will be at Exhibition Stadium tonight at 7:45 p.m.

The Valley Huskers hold their annual Spring Camp this weekend, with a special guest dropping by.

J.R. Redmond is coming up as a guest coach and will be on the Exhibition Stadium turf Friday night at 7:45 p.m.

Redmond is a retired National Football League running back.

The former Arizona State Sun Devil was a third round pick of the New England Patriots in the 2000 NFL draft and won a Super Bowl in his second season as his Pats downed the St. Louis Rams 20-17.

Redmond had the key play on the final drive that led to Adam Vinatieri’s game-winning field goal.

Catching a pass out of the backfield, Redmond evaded a tackler, got the first down and got out of bounds, preserving a valuable timeout that would be used to give Vinatieri time to kick.

Redmond played three more seasons after that, two with the Oakland Raiders and one with the Arizona Cardinals.
