LINCOLN -- A new tailgate area outside of Nebraska Wesleyan's Abel Stadium will be dedicated just before the Prairie Wolves' first football game of the season this Saturday. It will be named in honor of Scott Bostwick, a former Nebraska Wesleyan football player and assistant coach, who died from a heart attack at the age of 49 two years ago, after being named the new head football coach at Division II Northwest Missouri State. Craig Beebe (bee-bee), one of Bostwick's former Nebraska Wesleyan teammates, is heading up the fundraising effort to pay for the new Bostwick Park and says more than $80,000 has been donated to pay for the new tailgate area. Nebraska Wesleyan opens the season Saturday afternoon at 1 against 17th-ranked Tabor College of Kansas. You can hear that and other Prairie Wolves football games this season on KFOR 1240.
