Nebraska football royalty visits Lincoln to encourage local kids to go to college.

Prince Amukamara stopped by Lincoln High School Wednesday.

He was there to talk about "Collegebound Nebraska".

It's a program which guarantees any student who qualifies for a federal pell grant can attend the university free of charge.

Amukamara says even though he is a Superbowl champion, he considers graduating college one of his greatest accomplishments.

He says, "Nebraska's always been a great state that helped mold me into the man I am today, so always giving back to the community that has done so much for me means a lot."

Amukamara graduated from UNL in three and a half years.

He says he hopes his story can inspire other students to go to college and follow their dreams.
