2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Sophomore Givens Price added depth on an injury-plagued offensive line during the 2013 season. The 6-4, 295-pound Price was a reserve at offensive guard and was a contributor on the Huskers’ special teams, both as a blocker on place-kicking units and as a punt protector.
Price and fellow sophomore Ryne Reeves were prepared to see significant action late in the season following injuries to the Huskers’ top four offensive guards.
Price was one of 30 Huskers to earn Academic All-Big Ten honors this fall.
Price played in seven games as a reserve offensive guard. His role increased late in the season with numerous injuries on the offensive line, and he became a regular on the Huskers’ PAT and field goal units.
