Coach Frost Takes Next Step to Restore Legacy

#All’N

One of the tenets of success identified by head coach Scott Frost was to revitalize the walk-on program. He envisioned a 150 player roster to improve the quality of practices. The first step towards accomplishing that goal was achieved by signing the biggest and best walk-on class in recent memory. Here are the new Preferred Walk-On players, graciously provided by Rivals.com:

OL Collin Shefke (6-5, 275), Lincoln Southwest

LS Cameron Pieper (6-4, 220), Lincoln Southwest

TE Bryson Krull (6-5, 220), North Platte

FB Chris Cassidy (6-1, 210), Lincoln Pius

LB Jake Archer (6-1, 205), Omaha Skutt

DE Ryan Schommer (6-5, 235) Norfolk

OL AJ Forbes (6-3, 275) Bellevue West

WR Justin Holm (6-6, 180) Lincoln Southwest

WR Wyatt Liewar (6-3, 170), O’Neill

ATH Brody Belt (5-10, 175), Millard West

QB Matt Masker (6-2, 215), Kearney Catholic

DE Colton Feist (6-3, 235), Yutan

LB Joey Johnson (6-3, 230), Gretna

LB Anthony Banderas (6-1, 215), Lincoln Southwest

DB Isaiah Stalbird (6-1, 200), Kearney

DB Corbin Frederick (5-11, 195), Mansfield, Texas

WR Bennett Folkers (6-3, 180), Gothenburg

ATH Simon Otte (6-2, 180), York

ATH Moses Bryant (6-0, 190), Elkhorn South

ATH Lane McCallum (6-2, 195), Norfolk (Air Force Academy)

LS Cade Mueller (6-1, 225), Gretna

There are a couple of points to make here. First, there are two long snappers. Wasting a scholarship on a long snapper means one less lineman that can be signed, and I know how much you guys love your linemen. Second, there is some real quality in this lineup. Lane McCallum is a transfer back from the Air Force Academy. Moses Bryant is a three star recruit that just dreamed of wearing Husker Red. It is said that your offensive and defensive units are only as good as the scout team they practice against. Having a large, talented scout team to prep against on Monday will pay dividends on Saturday. Congratulations to all these young men, and GBR!
