» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2014; Spring 2015)
Redshirt freshman Matt Jarzynka will look to add depth along the defensive front in 2015. The Loup City, Neb., native worked at defensive end throughout the spring, a position where NU returns experienced veterans in Greg McMullen and Jack Gangwish, but competition for playing time behind that duo will be wide open heading into fall camp.
Jarzynka redshirted and worked on the scout team defense in his first year in the program.
Before Nebraska (Norris HS)
Jarzynka played both offensive and defensive line at Loup City High School for Coach Nick Hodge. Jarzynka’s play as a senior earned him Class D-1 honorable-mention all-state accolades from both the Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal Star. He was also named to the All-Heartland Small School Super Squad first team as a defender. Jarzynka’s play as a junior helped Loup City to an 8-3 record and a trip to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.
The son of Mike and Susan Jarzynka, Matt was born on June 8, 1995. He has not declared a major, but is a two-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. Jarzynka has volunteered his time with Uplifting Athletes and local hospital visits
