Tough one. Jeff Smith offense,Jamel Williams on defense. Thought?
Jamel Williams, Jeff Smith and Eric Hagg are the three that come to mind for me. But today I'm going to paint way outside the lines and pick one of my all-time favorite Husker athletes - the great Shane Komine.
Jeff Smith comes to mind first and Hagg is the most recent great 28 he won the Iowa St game in 2010..
I will also give a shout out for Larry Frost who wore 28 from 1967-1969..
Agree with @schuele...
Offense: Jeff Smith
Another in a line of RBs who if Rozier wasn't around would have been a superstar. Had to share the backfield with Doug DuBose. All-Conference despite rushing for fewer yards than DuBose. Amazing punt returner as well.
Does anyone know why he redshirtded in 1981 after playing in 1980? Injuries? Create eligibility separation from Rozier/Craig?
Defense: Tie between Jamel Williams and Eric Haag
Both were the converted "tweener" defender: safeties that essentially played OLB/nickle. Swiss Army defenders. Added such versatility to a pair of the best defenses in school history.
- FB Brian Schuster. Got to give love to another 90s fullback. Averaged 8.8 ypc in 1995 behind Jeff Makovicka.
- WR Isaiah Fluellen. Best season was his freshman year, then steadily declined with Callahan's offense, then injuries and a switch to defense.
- IB Maurice Washington. What could have been...
