Senior Tyson Broekemeier has provided depth at the quarterback position during his Husker career. Broekemeier has had a good mastery of Nebraska’s offense, and has been an integral part of game preparation by working as a scout team quarterback.
Broekemeier is a business administration major and is on track to earn his degree in December. Broekemeier is a four-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll selection.
Broekemeier has added depth at quarterback throughout his Nebraska career, but has not appeared in a game. Broekemeier has played a key role in preparing the Huskers for games through his outstanding work on the scout team. He suffered a knee injury during fall camp as a true freshman and missed the season, before returning for bowl game practice.
