Green Bay Packers' Jordy Nelson Pledges Gift to Kansas State

K-State's Power Cat

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has pledged an undisclosed gift to Kansas State to help with the next phase of renovations to Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The gift from the former walk-on combined with other contributions pushes to $8 million the total raised for the next round of work. The $15 million phase will connect the east concourse to the recently renovated Vanier Football Complex, fully enclosing the stadium. It will also provide new visiting locker room space, offices and video boards. Nelson grew up near Manhattan. He says it's important to be giving back to the university that has afforded him the opportunities he has now. Kansas State has spent $165 million to renovate the stadium over the past five years.
