Derek Brown returned to Nebraska this summer, hoping it will help him return to form this fall. Brown, a star running back at Servite High School, spent the summer working with strength coach Brian Bailey and track coach Steve Rainbolt. The result is a bigger, stronger, faster, and he hopes, better back for the New Orleans Saints. "I did a lot more running than I've done in the past, not just on the field but on the track," Brown said.
