Chase Urbach has been Nebraska’s backup long snapper each of the past three seasons and once again figures to work with senior Jordan Ober to secure that position on the Huskers’ special teams. The Michigan native has backed up Ober the past two seasons and the long snappers contributed to the success of all-conference place-kicker Drew Brown, who completed his career in the top five at Nebraska in field goals and scoring.
Urbach was again Nebraska’s backup long snapper as a sophomore. He did not appear in a game but was a member of the Huskers’ travel roster for all five road games.
2016 (Redshirt Freshman)
Urbach was the backup to long snapper Jordan Ober. Urbach traveled to every game, but did not see game action.
Urbach sat out his first season at Nebraska as a redshirt.
Before Nebraska (Grosse Pointe South HS)
Urbach walked on at Nebraska after playing his junior and senior seasons for Tim Brandon at Grosse Pointe South High School in Grosse Pointe, Mich. Urbach earned all-conference honors in 2013 and 2014 as a long snapper and was named Special Teams Player of the Year as a senior for the Blue Devils. Urbach was a nationally ranked snapper for the class of 2015 and earned a 4.5-star rating from Chris Rubio of RubioLongSnapping.com.
Before committing to the Huskers, Urbach also considered offers from Indiana State and Hawaii.
Urbach is the son of Scott and Beth Urbach and was born on Jan. 23, 1997. He is majoring in advertising and public relations and is a two-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. Urbach was named to the Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne Citizenship Teams in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for his community outreach work.
