This week’s honoree is Mike Caputo, a 6 -1, 275-pound Senior center from Millard North. Mike originally walked on and earned a scholarship in 2009. His community outreach includes Special Olympics, American Education week and hospital visits. He was also named to the 2011 Brook Berringer Citizenship team. Mike will receive a plaque from SilverStone Group recognizing him as this week’s “Wisdom at Work Husker Athlete of the Week.”
Center Mike Caputo emerged as the centerpiece of Nebraska’s line during the 2010 season, and is expected to be the leader of a young, but talented 2011 offensive line. Caputo’s leadership role will be counted on even more as the Huskers operate under a new offensive system. Caputo is one of the top returning centers in the country and could be a contender for postseason accolades.
