Sunday hundreds of kids and their families met some of the biggest celebrities in Nebraska, Husker athletes. The Husker Heroes Outreach event invited people with disabilities and their families for a day out. 1011's Catherine Crane met up with one girl, who might just be your hero.

Guin Miles isn't wheelchair bound, but she's used one since before she can remember. Meeting "Husker Heroes" is something she'll remember.

"It's a big thing for me," said Guin. "I get to meet famous people! That's huge!"

Guin has more in common with her favorite football stars than meets the eye, she's also an athlete. A National Champion in fact.

"In wheel chair softball we were in the champion game," said Guin. "Then I hit the R.B.I. to win the championship."

Guin says the Huskers know a thing or two about overcoming challenges, and that's something they have in common.

"I think that's really great every time you get to overcome a challenge," said Guin. "That just means, 'oh yeah, I did it! Let's try to make a better goal for ourselves and keep on going!'"

"You just have to give back," said Braylon Heard, a Freshman Running back. "So many people helped you out to get where I am and you just have to give back."

"I think it's great for their self esteem," said Josh Cohen, Guin's dad. "Especially kids with disabilities. Knowing that these guys will take time out of their busy schedule to give back to the community, and just allow them to see they're normal people just like everybody else, and make a kids day like it did for her."

We asked Guin if she thought there was any chance she might be a hero for the Huskers.

"I think I might," said Guin. "I mean like if they really, really get to know me."
