Kearney vs. Omaha North, A state football final, 11/21/17

Kearney's Gabe Heins (25) watches his field-goal attempt against Omaha North during the 2017 Class A state final at Memorial Stadium.

A kicker from Kearney is the latest player to join Nebraska's 2019 class of walk-ons.

Gabe Heins, a Bearcat senior, announced his intentions Thursday via Twitter.

Heins, a 6-foot, 165-pounder, made five of eight field goals this past season, including a 44-yarder, and nailed 32 of 34 extra points. He becomes the second kicker in Nebraska's walk-on class, joining Dylan Jorgensen of Lincoln Southwest.
