Ahman Green: Number 16

An incredibly large number of people have been a part of the Nebraska football program over the years.

From the athletic directors to interns whose faces never graced a newspaperís print, all played a role.

Several lists have been made about the best Cornhuskers that there are, the best that there were and the best that there ever will be, but thereís something different about the most beloved members of such a tightly-knit family.

The idea of being beloved isnít all about statistics or trophies, but about how the community views you.

Several former players fit under this category, but not all were starters, and not all were initially offered scholarships.

There are even several staff members who deserve recognition.

With that said, letís have a look at the most revered Nebraska Cornhuskers in the teamís 121-year history:

Ahman Green- Number 16

Ahman Green was unleashed by the Nebraska Cornhuskers onto the world in 1995, and he still hasnít stopped running.

He ran for 3,880 rushing yards and 42 touchdowns as a Cornhusker and won two national championships as a member of Nebraskaís 1995 and 1997 squads.

Greenís professional career keeps on going and going like an Energizer battery.

He most recently signed a two-year deal with the Canadian Football Leagueís Montreal Allouettes.

Since 1998, he has been a member of the NFLís Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers (twice), Houston Texans and the UFLís Omaha Nighthawks before his current stop in Montreal.

Green is a four-time Pro Bowl selection and is currently the Packersí all-time leading rusher.
