Malachi Coleman has officially reported to Nebraska Football’s summer camp ready to show that he has what it takes to get on the field in his freshman season.
On Sunday, the Lincoln East product and Nebraska football signee starts the transition to official member of the 2023 roster. He and other members of his class report to Lincoln for the summer camp which will hopefully help them get acclimated to Matt Rhule’s way of doing things. He’ll also be trying to get acclimated to offensive coordinator Scott Satterfield’s playbook.
The goal for Coleman is simple. He wants to do everything in his power to make sure he can make an impact on the Nebraska football team in 2023. He isn’t looking at riding the pine and learning. he wants to be out on the field.
“Nothing’s going to be handed to you,” he told HuskerOnline. “You’ve got to be good enough. There ain’t no favorites in this game; it’s just a matter of whether you’re good enough or not.”
Coleman appears to have the right attitude to go and take a spot on the depth chart that freshmen are rarely able to grab. His showing up ready to learn and ready to be a part of the team this summer is really an extension of what he did in the spring.
Nebraska football signee is serious about starting
Malachi Coleman got up before his high school classes and managed to go and watch every single spring practice. He got to see how the team was going to run its defense and run its offense. And he got to see how the coaches run their program.
"“I wanted to see how the coaches operate. I wanted to see how they teach. I wanted to see how they coach. Each of those things are different to me. I wanted to see the structure of practice, how detailed they are with how they teach.”"
Now apparently healthy after a series of injuries during football and track season, the approach that Malachi Coleman is taking should impress Nebraska football fans. It’s likely impressing his new coaches and teammates as well.
