All are invited to attend a special tailgate party this weekend in Lincoln. The Home Agency of Elwood has invited beloved ex-Waunetan, Ray Lines, to be the special guest at their tailgate party this Saturday, Nov. 17 before the Huskers take on Minnesota at Memorial Stadium.

Lines grew up in Wauneta and now resides in Cambridge, Minn., where he helps with the Cambridge-Isanti High School football team, the Bluejackets. Lines has been involved with Bluejackets football for the past 11 years. He helps coaches and players throughout practices and games alike. When he’s not on the field helping the team or encouraging the players, Lines can be found at the Cambridge Wal-Mart where he has worked for the past12 years.

Although Lines is dedicated to the Bluejackets, he is also a dedicated Husker football fan.

Jim Baldonado with The Home Agency made arrangements for Ray and one of the Bluejackets coaches to attend The Home Agency tailgate party this Saturday.

The tailgate party is set to begin at 10:30 a.m. CT, four hours before game time, in downtown Lincoln at 501 10th Street in front of the 501 Building. The Nebraska/Minnesota game will begin at 2:30 p.m. CT at Memorial Stadium.

This Saturday’s game is also “Senior Day.” Wauneta native, Taylor Dixon is one of 14 in-state seniors playing their final home game with the Huskers.

Dixon has been a strong performer in the classroom, being named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll three times and to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll the past two semesters. Dixon’s career with the Huskers began in 2009 when he joined the team as a walk-on.
