Sutton RB Shines Before Shrine Game

By Ian Hest
    May 11th.

     Tornadoes rip through Central Nebraska.

     In Sutton, an EF3 leaves the town damaged.

     Mustang Running Back Cole Wiseman was there.

     “It was kind of scary when the storm hit,” Wiseman said. “You didn't know what was going to happen or anything like that and we were lucky. We were fortunate more than anything. Nobody got hurt.”

     Now, the future Doane Tiger is playing in this year's Shrine Bowl, just like his uncle did two decades ago, as one of Nebraska's best high school football players.

     Wiseman says his family lost only their basketball hoop in the storm, but in downtown Sutton, where whipping winds were upwards of 150 miles per hour, help was needed.

     “Went outside and right after the storm just started helping clean up. The next day everybody from all over came and just started helping clean it up.”

     Now, as the town recovers, Wiseman is lending another helping hand, recognizing the importance of the Shrine Game.

    “We're playing for the kids who can't play. I mean that's the point. The game is decided already Saturday. The winner is already decided and it's the kids.”
