CHADRON, Neb. — Football is a numbers game. For the freshmen on the Chadron State football team who are redshirting this season, 513 tons of snow removal never figured into that comparison.
That's because the freshmen combined forces with the Chadron State football coaching staff, college officials and a handful of community members to clear Elliott Field of snow Saturday morning after Winter Storm Atlas dropped up to at least a foot of snow in the Chadron area.
