Typical Iraqi war vet

Son of a DSC, I don't think the Senior players on the Nebraska football team are giving this Freshman too much grief.
2007 Outlook
Tyrone Fahie (pronounced FOY) joined the Nebraska program this winter after six years on active duty with the U.S. Military. In the last three years, Fahie has completed two tours in Iraq, where he worked for Seal Team One as a support communicator. Fahie earned a spot on the roster through the Huskers’ walk-on tryouts before spring practice.

Fahie will be a redshirt freshman for the Huskers this fall and will line up at defensive end, where he is listed as a reserve at base end. Fahie capped a solid spring practice by making three tackles in the Red-White contest. Fahie is originally from Virginia Beach, Va.

Before Nebraska (U.S. Navy/Ocean Lakes HS)
Fahie has spent the past several years on active duty, including two tours in Iraq. He graduated from Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach in 2000, where he was a standout linebacker and free safety.

Fahie was also a member of the marching band in high school.

Tyrone is the son of Floyd and Dafney Fahie, and was born Sept. 30, 1982, in Washington D.C. He is majoring in electrical engineering at Nebraska and carries a 3.077 grade-point average.
BZ. Looks like I have an excuse to root for Nebraska now.

Hat tip Tim.
