OUR GREATEST ATHLETES
In an historic series, The World-Herald selected Nebraska's Top 100 athletes.
The Top 100, selected in 2005, came from a pool of more than 450 names from the ranks of high school, college, amateur and professional sports from the past 130 years. Assistance came from a panel of veteran sports observers from across the state, with the newspaper's sports staff determining the final rankings.
