Here’s an awesome video that can make any college football fan crack a smile.
Late last week, the Nebraska Twitter account tweeted out a video of a 94-year-old Cornhuskers fan playing the university’s fight song, “There Is No Place Like Nebraska,” on the accordion. According to the woman who uploaded the video, who is his neighbor, the man’s name is Lawrence and he was lifelong farmer in rural Nebraska before retiring.
Lawrence’s neighbor wrote in the video’s description:
“He was a farmer all of his life in rural Nebraska and was married to the love of his life, Grace, for 74 years until she passed away over a year ago. I grew up just down the gravel road from Lawrence and his family. I always remembered him as the friendly farmer who would stop by our home in the summertime to give us a watermelon fresh from his garden. At almost 95 years old, Lawrence still drives his blue pickup truck into our town of 800 people each day to eat lunch at the senior center and play cards with his friends.”
Lawrence seems like an awesome guy and that laugh at the end of the video is fantastic. Lawrence will turn 95 on June 27. Happy birthday, Lawrence!
