Coleman, Hall ready for new challenges ahead for Nebraska wide receivers
"We just build off each other," incoming Nebraska freshman wide receiver Dae'Vonn Hall said when asked about teammate Malachi Coleman.
It was the easiest yes for incoming Nebraska wide receiver Dae’Vonn Hall when current Nebraska wide receiver Malachi Coleman reached out to be part of the inaugural Fly Like Chi Sports Combine. The event, held on Sunday, Jan. 7 at Speedway Village in Lincoln, was created with the intention of giving athletes ages 10-18 the opportunity to test their skills, get official times and prepare themselves for their futures.
But the Fly Like Chi Sports Combine was — and is — about more than just that. It was created as a way to give back to kids within the foster care system, allowing them the opportunity to discover their passions, develop skills and build confidence and self esteem.
That’s what inspired Hall.
“Obviously seeing somebody like Malachi doing what he's doing and the influence that he has and choosing to be a light in the world for kids that maybe don’t have a home to go to or a family to go to, that’s what you do this all for,” Hall said following the event.
That wasn’t the only reason. It’s personal, too.
