Honors & Awards
- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2012)
Seung Hoon Choi was one of two senior offensive linemen who played a key role for the Huskers during the 2012 season, helping Nebraska field one of the top offenses in the nation. The 6-2, 295-pound Choi started all 14 games at left guard and the continuity of the offensive line played a key role in the success of the offense.
A native of South Korea, Choi came to Lincoln in the eighth grade and first played football as a sophomore in high school. A former walk-on to the Husker program, Choi was one of five players to be awarded a scholarship prior to the start of the 2012 season.
Choi started every game for the Huskers, helping Nebraska lead the Big Ten in both rushing offense and total offense. The offensive line paved the way for a rushing attack that saw sophomore I-back Ameer Abdullah rack up 1,137 rushing yards, while quarterback Taylor Martinez added 1,019 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. Nebraska gained better than 430 yards in 12 of 14 games and rushed for at least 250 yards eight times in 2012.
Choi and sophomore Andrew Rodriguez split the starting role at left guard, with Choi taking over full-time when Rodriguez missed the final four games with a foot injury. Choi's play helped Nebraska average 217.2 rushing yards per game, while rushing for more than 200 yards seven times. The Huskers rushed for more than 300 yards against Washington, Wyoming and Minnesota.
Choi made his starts against Washington, Wyoming, Penn State, Michigan, Iowa and South Carolina, joining Spencer Long and Mike Caputo as walk-ons on the starting line. The play of the line paved the way for I-back Rex Burkhead to rush for 1,357 yards, the most by an NU I-back since 1997.
Choi added depth at offensive guard and played in the opener against Western Kentucky.
